I have been a member of the Taylor community for 28 years now. I married in 
my first year as a faculty member. My boys were born here and grew up around 
outstanding Taylor student role models. My sons were further shaped by 
Taylor's college education and friendships. You, faculty and staff, have been my 
family's community, especially this year when we needed you the most. 

I am fragile as an individual. I am a moment away from breaking. All of us 
are. Life could completely change for any of us tomorrow. We should not let 
that certainty cause us to live our lives in apprehension of suffering or dying. 
The Bible says that we are but grass, and that death is our destiny. The 
smartest person on campus, the most successful athlete, the most talented 
musician, the healthiest body. .all could be lost tomorrow. 

On February 16, 2003, during my 27th year as a professor at Taylor, my frag- 
ile life entered death's doorway when I suffered a large brain aneurysm. The 
thundering headache and hemorrhaging brain meant my life could be over, in 
minutes perhaps, or, the massive brain damage would leave me in a nursing 
home for the rest of my life. Within minutes of the burst aneurysm, the brain 
damage took its course and my mind slipped into a shallow level of conscious- 
ness. I was lost, and my poor family was lost in fear for me and themselves. 

I am strong in the Taylor community. God's gift to me during this time of cri- 
sis was the Taylor-Made community. My wife and sons were never alone during 
this time of crisis. I could not be there to help my family as 1 lay in intensive care 
hanging on to life. But, you were the prayers; you were the strength for this 
frightening time in my family's life. As my dear wife Jo Ann sat alone in the 
emergency room waiting for the diagnosis, she was told to expect me to die, and 
to send for our grown sons. Almost immediately Taylor faculty, staff and stu- 
dents began to arrive to be with her and to help in so many ways. At Methodist 
Hospital my wife, sons, daughters-in-law, parents in-law, and brother lived the 
week prior to surgery with me on the edge of death. But, they were not alone. 

The Taylor-Made family was there also. Students, faculty, staff, Taylor gradu- 
ates, Taylor parents, Taylor supporters - The larger Taylor community - you 
brought hugs, prayers and shared tears my family needed. You brought food, 
made airport runs, and many shared moments of love and laughter. You shov- 
eled my drive way; you brought in the mail; you provided cash; and you 
showed the Lord's calming presence. Most of all, you prayed for me and my 
family. And our God gave me life again. May I always be Christ to you, my 
Taylor-Made family, just as you were Christ to me and my family!

Professor and Department Chair of Psychology

On Saturday morning freshman Matthew Hall and PROBE leader Tressa RIbaudo play "Giants, Wizards, and Dwarfs," one of the bonding activities that the fresh- 
men participate in over the weekend. 



When freshman Heather Fountain first set foot on Taylor's 
campus last fall, she was overwhelmed by a reception much 
warmer than she could have ever anticipated. 

"I didn't expect to feel so welcomed," said Fountain, remem- 
bering her first moments on campus. 

Fountain's roommate, freshman Laura Rodeheaver agreed. "I 
was overwhelmed by the sense of community and that so many 
acti\'ities and people were placed specifically to make me feel 
welcome," she said. 

One of the favorites among those activities was the "Sweet 
Home Indiana" BBQ dinner and hoe-down. Students met with 
their PROBE (Providing Relevant Orientation For a Better 
Education) groups for the first time. They enjoyed an evening of 
fun, while accidentally stepping on toes and trying to keep up. 

Another bonding activity was the Escape to Reality challenge 
course. Playing communication games, doing "trust falls" and 



solving problems together encouraged students to get to know 
their PROBE groups better. 

After the lofts were finally up and most of the boxes and bags 
were unpacked, families had the difficult task of saying good- 
bye for what for many would be the longest separation from 
each other thus far. 

"I was excited when I first got to my room and started meet- 
ing people," saici Fountain. "Our PA's were so friendlv, but say- 
ing good-bye to my dad was one of the hardest things I have 
ever done. We stood at the end of the sidewalk anci hugged and 
cried. Then he had to fly back to California." 

Every college or university has some sort of "Welcome 
Weekend" but Taylor's is unic]ue. The covenant community that 
Taylor fosters is rare, and the heartfelt welcome that its new 
members receive it just as special.

Community Plunge shows the Upland community 
that Taylor University is here to serve them. 
September 4th marked the 10th year of this event. 

Many freshmen participate in the event because it 
is the first opportunity they have to serve at Taylor. 

"In serving, I really felt like we made a difference 
in the people's lives that we helped," freshmen 
Joshua Ahlgrim said. 

"I think it is a great way to get to know the people 
in the surrounding communitv," added his room- 
mate Tom Smillie. 

Despite the fact that many of the participants in the 
event are freshmen, students from all classes partic- 
ipate. 

"Even though I'm a sophomore, I still feel that com- 
munity outreach is important and a great way to 
show the Upland community our support," 
Matthew Voss said. 

This year over 400 students participated in a vari- 
ety of tasks aimed at helping the community of 
Upland. Students helped out with necessary 
upkeep at some of the homes in the community, 
cleaned litter from streets, and painted park benches 
and playground ec-juipment. 

"It was really encouraging to see some of the older 
students have the desire to get involved, and I 
believe that the community really appreciated the 
work that we did," said Kelly Peters, co-director of 
Community Plunge. 'T thought overall that God 
used the event to benefit the community."

SPIRITUAL 



^T.r „„rroT0T^:t.. c^'T^.^ 



Ui.>si mwi 



I thought the week of September 15 would be like any other, but I was 
wrong. Dr. Erik Thoennes from Biola University came to Taylor to speak 
during our annual fall Spiritual Renewal week. I entered the chapel ser- 
vice Monday morning expecting to get nothing from it. 

This past summer I experienced more pain, heartaches, betrayals, trials 
and tribulations than I have in my entire life. Amazingly, I came out 
stronger and even closer to God. 1 knew this summer served as a test, 
which I passed. 

By the time summer ended I could already see how God was working 
through these moments of despair. I thought I was on a spiritual high 
because I accepted what happened and appreciated the hard times God 
had allowed. 1 soon learned, however, that God wanted more from me. 

Thoennes used the book of Exodus for his messages. 1 enjoyed what he 
had to say and found it very enlightening, but Wednesday's evening ser- 
vice convicted me and changed my heart. 

He explained that we go through hard times because God has a pur- 
pose for our lives. He hit my lesson from the summer right on the nose. 
However, his next statement caught me off guard. "We should love the 
hard times because it enables God to show his glory," he said. 

1 thought he was crazy. He wants me to love the hard times? He thinks 
1 should love the times of despair when 1 feel all hope is gone and I have 
nothing left? The answer was yes. 

My heart felt burdened and heavy. God had two lessons for me to learn 
this summer, but I only walked away knowing one. Without the hard 
times 1 wouldn't appreciate the good times. I wouldn't understand God's 
glory. 1 would never know Him the way He wanted. 

Spiritual Renewal week's purpose for me was to finish the lesson start- 
ed last summer. I don't remember everything Thoennes taught, but his 
statement about loving the harci times will forever be in my mind. The 
week's goal was to renew the spirituality of the student body, and it def- 
initelv did that for me.

AIRBAND

Airband 2003.

Taylor's annual Airband competition is undoubtedly one of the 
biggest and most anticipated events on campus. Most groups 
spend several weeks working on their act for the annual lip sync 
competition, which usually includes choreography, crazy cos- 
tumes and elaborate sets. The night before the big show, some 
individuals camp outside the front doors of the chapel to be at the 
front of the line when the doors open. 

So what makes Airband such a big deal? 

"Airband is not necessarily all about that night; it's about the 
weeks leading up to it . . . the team-building, community and hard 
work that builds character and relationships," said senior 
Courntey Kennedy, vice president of ICC. 

This year's Airband experience on Oct. 9 was no different. The 
theme was "Gotcha," and the skits and decorations were based on 
humorous pranks. 

First East Wengatz took first place with "Step in Time" from 
"Mary Poppins," and stole the title of Airband champs from Gerig 
Hall, who had held it for the past two years. Chimney sweeps 
danced, tumbled and used set pieces as balancing beams and 
spinning platforms. Senior Leroy Timblin helped the group chore- 
ograph the show and build the elaborate sets. "We had a lot to do 
in a short amount of time, but the guys really came together and 
did a great job," he said. 

Second place went to the senior's hilarious "Scramble" routine. 
Over 60 seniors performed to a medley of "Going to the Chapel," 
"Wishin' and Hopin'" and "Another One Bites the Dust." 
"We all had a great time preparing the act," said Brit Jenson, one 



of the leaders of the group. "Single and engaged alike . . . we all 
laughed, realizing how accurately we portrayed love lives at 
Taylor," Jenson said. 

Second East Olson took third place with their rendition of Kirk 
Franklin's "Unconditional." Sophomore Joe Lucero acted as 
Franklin, while he, five guys, 34 girls and five of the Ortega chil- 
dren from the Real Life Ministry performed an energetic routine 
choreographed by one of the group's leaders, Jessica Howard. 
"There was no doubt about it, the kids stole the show . . . and in 
the process they stole our hearts," said Howard. 

Six acts did not place, but they succeeded in entertaining the 
audience. Second West Olson's DC Talk medley opened the show 
and included a giant trust fall stunt. Gerig's version of "Friend 
Like Me" from "Aladdin" had numerous dancing matradees. 
Third East Olson's medley from "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" 
had acting, lyrical dancers and humorous partner dancing. In 
Third Center Olson's version of "Hard Knock Life" from "Annie," 
girls in ragged clothing acted and danced with props. Third West 
Olson's and Third East Wengatz's oldies medley of "Great Balls of 
Fire" and "My Boyfriend's Back," included fast partner dancing, 
flips and a toe-touch stunt. Tommy Grimm, student body presi- 
dent, played the part of Tommy in First West Olson's nostalgic 
rendition of Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." 

All the preparation and practice came together for an enter- 
taining night for the students, faculty, staff, family and commu- 
nity members who attended the event.

HOMECOMfNG

Taylor University isn't simply a liberal arts college. Reducing 
Taylor to a mere center for academic and spiritual growth ignores 
some of its most important characteristics to former students. 
Taylor's faithful alumni recall some of their fondest memories from 
Taylor every fall as they return for Homecoming. 

The weekend of October 10 promised enjoyable reunions with 
old friends and classmates anci the excitement of a homecoming 
football game. Returning alumni also had the opportunity to enjoy 
weekend chapel services, a 5K walk/run, and an alumni brunch. 

"There is a sense that you are right back where you left off," said 
Taylor alumni Michael Darling. "It was such a special time when 
we lived in the community; all the memories come right back." 

Current students observe the emotions and sentiments that their 
predecessors experience as they retrace their fciotsteps at Taylor, 



hoping that someday they will look back on Taylor with the same 
brightness in spirit and will return to reminisce with their friends. 

"I look forward to coming back someday," said junior Michael 
Cox. "Watching my parents interact with their friends makes me 
think of who my close friends will be down the road." 

Homecoming is a time of year when past and present members 
of the student body are able to see the quality that has made Taylor 
so well known: the community. Homecoming helps Taylor alurrmi 
realize that their Taylor experience was not an isolated four-year 
incident. Friendships formed at Taylor seldom expire. 

Homecoming serves as a great time for alumni to recapture a 
pleasant piece of their college years and for current students to 
learn to savor what will be a truly memorable period of their lives.

Live at the Student Union on Monday, October 13, rc)und one 
of Taylor's first American Idol competition began. The competi- 
tion served as a Chorale fundraiser for their 2004 spring break 
trip to Greece. 

The real American Idol is a reality show on the Fox network. 
Contestants perform a song each week and are judged by Paula 
Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell. Viewers call in to vote 
for their favorite performer. 

American Idol at Taylor lasted two nights. Monday night, the 
audience watched a video of auditions from 25 students. Next, 
seniors Steven Becker, Loralee Songer and Taylor Horner, posing 
as Simon, Paula and Randy, chose the top 10, who performed 
Monday night.

More than 580 families came to the campus for Parents Weekend this past 
fall to see what their children do nine months out of the year. 

Parents Weekend has been a Taylor University tradition for around 35 
years, according to Jerry Cramer, director of parents programs. 

The weekend kicked off with a chapel service led by Dr David Gyertson 
and finished with a Sunday sermon by Pastor Randall Gruendyke. 

It included events like Ste\'e Green singing with the Taylor Uni\'ersity 
Jazz Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, Symphonic Band, and Taylor Ringers 
bell choir. Also a yearly tradition, the Taylor general store combined with 
gifts from parents raised $12,000 for the Emergency Assistance Fund. This 
fund allocates money to students in cases of medical costs not covered by 
insurance and emergency tra\'el in case of death or se\'ere illness of imine- 
diate family. 
Other weekend events included devotions with Dr. Mark Cosgrove and a 
football game versus Geneva. Parents also met with facultv representati\'es 
in the Rupp Communications lobby and other academic buildings, and \is- 
ited senior art exhibits around campus and the student art fair 

Both students and parents look forward to this weekend for a chance to 
spend time together, and it gives the students a chance to avoid dining 
commons food for at least a day. 

"It was \'ery nice to ha\'e my grandma and mom \'isit campus," said senior 
John Lesko from Milwaukee, Wis. "Mv fa\-orite part of Parents Weekend 
was getting to spend time with Mom and Grandma and giving them a 
chance to experience life at Taylor University." 

"The highlight of Parent's Weekend for me was the Steve Green con- 
cert," said Chris Lesko, John's mother. "Our son grew up listening to Ste\e 
Green's 'Hide 'Em In Your Heart' tapes in which Steve puts scripture vers- 
es to music. Being at Taylor has gi\en him an excellent opportunity to see 
those truths of scripture applied and lived out on a daily basis."

Fouad Masri speaks in Monday's WOW Chapel about the challenges facing Christians when reaching out to the Muslim community, Masri was born in Beirut, 
Lebanon, and has spent his life reaching out to Muslims. He is the current president of the Crescent Project of Indianapolis, a ministry that equips Chnstians and local 
churches to reach out with love to the Muslim community 



World Opportunities Week changed my life. Honestly, I was sur- 
prised. 

As a member of the WOW cabinet, I had been planning the week 
of November 3 through 7 since spring of 2003. Elizabeth 
Ludington and I were in charge of publicity, making brochures, T- 
shirts, etc. I also observed my fellow co-cabinet members as they 
worked to organize the seminars, speaker schedule, and the tables 
in the DC for the mission representatives . . . everything was 
planned down to the last detail. 

When it came down to it, I didn't expect to be seriously touched 
by WOW. I had been a part of making WOW happen and looked 
upon it as a somewhat wayward but well-meaning child. My life 
plan had always included going into full-time missions: I had 
already made up my mind, and I couldn't see how WOW could 
add to that. 

That began to change as soon as Fouad Masri from The Crescent 
Project stepped on the platform in chapel on Monday. With quick 
humor, compelling information and an obvious passion for what 
he was doing, he captivated the students, myself included. I 
already had a significant burden for the Muslim world, and that 
desire was firmly cemented by Masri's messages. 

On Tuesday, I went to the Indianapolis Airport to pick up our 
next speaker. Dr. Harold Sala and his wife Darlene. In the hour 
and a half drive back to campus, I was astounded by this amazing 
couple. They travel all over the world practically every month 
with a media ministry called Guidelines International. Sala rattled 



off the list of where they would go on their next trip, and I asked 
him if the traveling is exhausting. "It's never exhausting when 
you're doing what the Lord wants to you do," he said. 

As I sat in the front row in chapel the next morning, listening to 
Sala speak, I realized WOW, my wayward child, was now becom- 
ing the \'oice of God in my heart. 

Our final speaker, Gary Witherall, is a former missionary to 
Lebanon where his wife was killed in November of 2002. He now 
travels around the United States, sharing about his experiences. 

On Friday, Witherall shuffled around on the platform for a while, 
talking about how he came to Christ, how he met his wife, Bonnie, 
and how they went to Lebanon. Then, he talked about her death, 
and his subsequent realization of what it truly meant to be dead to 
self, and alive only in Christ. 

"Nothing matters, but that you lay everything you have at the 
feet of Christ," he said. "Nothing matters. Nothing matters. Give it 
up. All of it," he repeated. 

And my life was changed. There is something so di\'inely satis- 
fying to give over to God something you cognitively know is his, 
but you haven't been able to give back. 

After hearing Fouad's call to action, Sala's thought-provoking 
stories of the challenges of the mission field, and Witherall's praise 
for God despite the unimaginable loss of the person he loved, who 
could come out of that week the same person as before?

to pump up the crowd for the music that 
ensued. 




Jared Cheek on harmonica and Phil 
Danielson on accoustic perform as street 
bums. 



They laughed, they clapped, and they sang along as their Taylor peers took 
the stage to perform cover songs ranging from 1985-2000 at Taylor's My 
Generation Night 2003. Though some songs were recognized while others 
were heard for the first time, the 900-person crowd enjoyed them all. 

This year's show featured 10 bands in a New York, New York, theme, com- 
plete with skits, including Conan O'Brien and Seinfeld, and commercials. An 
audience favorite was the "English Hall: We Oven-It" commercial, a parody on 
the new Taylor slogan, "We Covenant." 

As the crowd entered a transformed Rediger Auditorium, a sleeping bum 
greeted them and street musicians, armed with a harmonica and acoustic gui- 
tar, played their homemade hits for money. 

The house band played as the fans took their seats. When all were finally sit- 
uated, the house band dished out an upbeat medley to which the Rockettes 
danced. After the high-kickers left the stage, Joe Lucero and Ethan Dalv strut- 
ted on to perform an original My Generation Night rap. 

The crowd was pumped and ready for more musical treats. Senior New York 
native Dan Dolson properly welcomed everyone in his best Brooklyn accent 
and then introduced the first of the bands: The Dave Matthews Band, a small 
musical army fronted by Brian Field, singing "Ants Marching." 

Next, for all the country lovers, Katie Bierdeman sang Shania Twain's "That 
Don't Impress Me Much." The Verve Pipe's "Freshman," played by Michael 
Larson and Joe Arcano, was a near-tear-jerker. "Where Is My Mind?" by The 
Pixies drew looks of surprise and some laughter as singer Joe Ozinga held the 
audience in the palm of his hand with his entertaining performance. Closing 
out the first half were Brianne Hillesland, Kacia Hillesland and Megan 
McAdoo. These mightv triple-threat females sang the vocals for Wilson 
Philip's "Hold On." 

After intermission the music resumed as Erik Heavey donned the stage with 
a stool and acoustic guitar to swoon the audience with Sister Hazel's "Out 
There." Dressed like Robert Smith, only with much shorter and tamer hair, Joe 
Darling's haunting voice carried The Cure's "Lovesong." The Gerig-led Soggy 
Bottom Boys played "Man Of Constant Sorrow" to perfection. Fuel's 
"Shimmer" gave the crowd a taste of Ethan Daly's rock vocals. 

Finally, Ace of Base appeared onstage for "I Saw The Sign." The first time 
through, however, the keyboard malfunctioned resulting in a loss of the part 
that truly carries the song. The band played on, but left despaired, only to 
return again moments later to an encouraging, chanting crowd who wanted to 
hear it again. The second time e\'ery instrument blended with Cat Randall's 
sultry \'ocals to complete the British pop song. 

The house band closed the show to a standing crowd with "Welcome To The 
Jungle" bv Guns N' Roses. Tim Movido stepped up to the challenge of Axl Rose 
duty on the microphone, and no one was let down. 

Joe Ozinga, singer for The Pixies said, "1 think we all wanted to entertain the 
kids by completely rocking their faces off, and by their reactions I'd say it was 
golden. In the words of the great Neil Young, 'Hey, hey. My, my. Rock and roll 
will never die.'"

Joe Ozlnga's energetic stage presense draws 
many emotions from the crowd as he sings 
the Pixies, "Where is My Mind " 



Katie Bierdemen. with her rendition of Shania 
Twain's "That Don't Impress Me Much, " 
makes for a well-rounded representation. 



Eric Heavey's cover of Sister Hazel was the 
only solo of the night and showcased his 
unique guitar techniques.

SILENT 



«siiiif 






No cheers, no applause and no support greet the Taylor Trojan 
men's basketball team as they run out onto the court. In fact, 
sound is nonexistent. The visiting team, lU-Northwest, makes its 
entrance with no hoots of derision from the Taylor fans. The team 
is the victim of the basketball game known by Taylor students as 
Silent Night. Anyone unfamiliar with this particular basketball 
game would find the silence odd and unnerving. 

Both teams start racking up points, but the students and fans of 
Taylor sit, deadpan and silent. That is, until the right moment. 
Almost two minutes into the game, the Trojans lead the game with 
eight points, and have possession of the ball. Someone takes a shot 
which seemingly arcs in slow motion. The ball hits the rim, 
bounces up, and falls back almost lazily through the hoop. Ten 
points! The collective breath of Taylor fans, held for what seemed 



like ages, is released in a deafening explosion of cheer. The oppos- 
ing team looks around in confusion, as the crowd, thought dead, 
erupts with life. The cheers are thunderous and unanimous. 

The game grinds to a halt for two minutes as the visiting team 
calls a timeout to regain composure. The game continues, but the 
opposing team has been thrown so off-balance, it never has a 
chance to get back into the game. At halftime, Taylor's score is 
twice that of the visiting team, and that number only continues to 
increase in the second half. However, on this particular night the 
score does not matter to the fans. What matters is cheering louder 
than a Super Bowl crowd while coming together with friends and 
fellow students in one fun night, for a truly Taylor made experi- 
ence. Silent night? Not really.

At the end of the exciting game the fans rushed forward to engulf the Taylor Trojan men's basketball team in a huddle of cheer Students dressed in pajamas, togas, ani- 
mal costumes, nativity scene outfits and game day shirts in honor of the special night. Silent Night is an amazing night in which the fans unite together to cheer the Taylor 
Trojans on to victory, which makes the night not so silent

LIGHTHOUSE 



Envision entering a culture in which less than two 
percent of the population is Christian. Imagine minis- 
tering in a country where AIDS is ravaging genera- 
tions and making thousands of children orphans. 
Picture a country in which children are dying because 
no one is there to touch them. 

Christ declared in Acts 1:8 that his followers would 
be his witnesses "in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to 
the ends of the earth." The 2004 Lighthouse teams had 
the unique opportunities to do this. Seven teams trav- 
eled to fi\e continents during the month of January, 
spending approximately three weeks ser\ing the Lord 
and watching him change their world views. 

No student returned the same way he or she left. 
Some discovered new perspectives on poverty, dis- 
ease and the reality of gooci and evil in the world. 
Some strengthened their spiritual gifts or dwelt in the 
joy of God being manifested in their weaknesses, 
while others watched God redirect their entire futures. 
Junior Adam Frank, a history major planning to 
teach high school, never considered being a pastor. 

"I always had a desire to learn, read and talk about 
theology," said Frank. "I love preaching and teaching 
but I never considered God might call me to use that." 

While in Bolivia, Frank received an unexpected con- 
firmation from the Lord. Frank shared his testimony 
by way of a translator at the Bolivian Evangelical 
University. When the team was debriefing about the 
day's events, a Bolivian national who heard Frank's 
testimony boldly entered their meeting, looked at 
Frank and pronounced, "You are going to be a pastor. " 

These words resonated with Frank's spirit, as only 
days before he wrote in his journal, "I know you [God] 
will use me in theology, teaching and devotions." 

When Lighthouse students leave Taylor for the mis- 
sion field, they often believe they are going only to 
minister. But while seeking to teach others to hear the 
voice of the Good Shepherd, students also hear his 
still small voice. All the teams returned to Taylor with 
a greater knowledge of God and what it means to be a 
part of a global church.

A small group of students gathered outside the doors of Rediger 
Chapel the night of Thursday, April 15th. They waited for Rediger 
to open because it would host the widely attended event known 
on Taylor's campus as Nostalgia Night. Students slowly trickled 
out of their dorms into the brisk, stale air of the spring evening. 
Eventually, the group of students grew and began to emit a low 
rumble that permeated all corners of Taylor's campus. 

By 8 o'clock, dormitories had almost entirely emptied their bow- 
els full of students onto the sidewalk outside of the chapel doors. 
Yes, English girls, Olson girls, Sammy guys, Wengatz guys and 
mixed parties from Bergwall, Gerig, Swallow and off-campus 
showed up representing the entire campus. 

When the doors swung wide open at 8:15, students hurriedly 
shuffled up the stairs and toward seats that would afford them a 
panoramic view of the glorious stage that rested before them. The 
performers waited upstairs for their turn to exhibit the various 
acts that they had been practicing for weeks. 

The theme of the evening was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate 
Factory and the interior of the chapel was decorated accordingly. 
The night opened with the house band being led by Matt Hoppe 
in "The Candy Man Can." Renditions of classic songs by the likes 
of Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, The Turtles, The Ramones, Elton 
John, Queen, War, Bill Withers, and many others were performed, 
punctuated by energetic skits featuring many Taylor students and 
Taylor's dean of students, Walt Campbell. 

Student performers shined brightly under the luminous stage 
lights showering them and their instruments. Students left with a 
renewed aesthetic sense that had been tweaked by a new standard 
in artistic performance. It could be said the evening played out 
like a novel, rising in action to an irresolvable conflict, a turning 
point, and concluding with an unpredictable resolution to leave 
the audience breathless.

A crowd of screaming fans waits outside Rediger Auditorium as Taylor's best film mak- 
ers step out of the limousine and make their way down the red carpet. The air is thick 
with anticipation as students race for seats. 

The nine films presented were created by Taylor students, including one entirely digi- 
tal. Seven films competed for cash prizes totaling $1000 and two were humorous shorts 
made just for fun. 

Audience members roared with laughter over "Only In Dreams," a film chronicling the 
meeting, acceleration and failure of a TU dating relationship. Senior Matthew Abernathy 
wrote and directed the film and freshman Stephen Abernathy produced it. Sophomore 
Sara Woodard received the Best Leading Actress Award and junior Bryan Jackson 
received the Best Leading Actor Award for "Only In Dreams." Also, "Attack Goats 
Attack," the film created by Stephen and Matthew Abernathy, received the Best 
Supporting Actor Award for the entire cast. 

The Best Original Screenplay Award and the Students' Choice Award went to senior 
Dave "Shabotz" Turner for his film "La Bella," a hilarious tribute to generic products. 
Turner also submitted the non-competing film "Penguin Jazz," which lauds the grace (or 
lack thereof) of penguins. 

"Giving Up Alone," one of two films submitted by senior Neville Kiser, received the 
awards for Best Picture and Best Cinematography. The film draws the audience into a 
sunlit beach scene where a little girl is quietly working on a sandcastle. Her hard work is 
destroyed, not by the waves, but by her brother. Dismayed, she leaves the remnant castle 
to the water and sun. Paul Mojonnier produced the film. 

Other films in the competition this year were "Winners Never Quit" by John Hendrick, 
"Coffee Stains" by senior Kaiti M. Bierdeman, and "Stones" by senior Kyle Dufendach, 
sophomore Ke\in Dufendach and junior Jeff Courter.

GRANDPARENTS' 



';*■•■ 



For seven years Taylor University has seen fit to honor with a 
special event those men and women who leave us their legacy. 
The event: Grandparent's Day. Every year the grandparent's of 
Taylor students come from all over the country to experience the 
daily lives of their children's children. They don't always come 
expecting to be blessed, but nearly all of them leave commenting 
that they have been. 

This year about 400 grandparents arrived for the special day on 
Friday, April 30th. The guests were welcomed at breakfast in the 
dining commons followed by a session in the chapel with Dr. 
Gyertson. Most grandparents then enjoyed attending classes with 
their respective student/s. Many professors opened their class 
sessions for a time to hear the thoughts and opinions from the vis- 
itors on the topic of the day. In the afternoon there was time to 
enjoy a concert given in the chapel. 

Some dorm floors on campus decided to honor their grandpar- 
ents with an additional event. For example, Second East Olson 



gave a Grandparents' Dessert. With a smaller and more intimate 
setting, everyone present had a chance to share and ask questions. 
Over coffee and cheesecake the grandparents talked about their 
marriages, their dreams, past occupations and current goals. They 
even felt free to brag about the grandchildren sitting next to them. 
Several spoke of feeling inspired as they observed Taylor students 
taking a hold of the work God is doing. Near the end of the 
evening one student tearfvilly thanked the guests for the legacy 
that they are imparting to each of their young relatives. 

In a society where the elderly are often overlooked and under- 
appreciated. Grandparent's Day is a breath of fresh air for every- 
one involved. We are reminded by the lives of our beloved elder- 
ly what it means to live worthy of the fact that we are made in the 
image of God. In His image we are called to love and often we are 
inspired most profoundly by the love passed to us from the hearts 
of our grandparents.

SPRING 



For Taylor students, spring break may mean a hiatus from class- 
es, but for the 280 students who participated in Taylor sponsored 
trips there was hardly a break in the action. 

Students traveled to the Dominican Republic to work with 
national children and MK's and to Mexico to spend time with chil- 
dren in orphanages. Other students who traveled to Mexico 
teamed up with the Lions Club to distribute eyeglasses. One team 
went to Russia to work primarily with orphans. An Equador team 
comprised of half Upland students and half Fort Wayne students 
did manual labor and presented the JESUS Film. 

The lacrosse team originally plamied to go to Haiti but due to 
political instability, they were rerouted to Jamaica. 

"God was in control back in December," said junior lacrosse 
coach Scott Swinburne, remembering the teams' plaiining and 
preparation. "When we got there God showed us why we were 
supposed to go. It was good to have that to strengthen our faith." 

Students who traveled to Daytona Beach, Florida, were also in 
for surprises. Instead of centering their ministry on a work project 
or VBS, this team's ministry was grilling hamburgers. 

"Evangelizing by grilling burgers is an easy way to talk to peo- 
ple," said freshman Andy Manet. "Free food is a great way to start 
talking to people. We would go talk to people on the streets at 
night while they were partying. If someone sees you are being that 
bold, they might laugh at you but they will listen to what you have 
to say."

After a one-year delay, the Taylor Chorale traveled to Greece to 
bring their ministry of music to a country where Christians are 
considered second class citizens. The Taylor Ringers traveled to 
the Czech Republic and Ukraine playing in concert halls and 
schools and seeing God use them most in moments of weakness. 
The team traveling to Honduras taught VBS and built play- 
grounds, and caught a fresh vision of what it means to be a 
Christian. 

"We came to be a part of the work the Lord was already doing in 
Honduras," said senior Katie Kibler. "We didn't start it and we 
won't finish it but we got to be a part of it." The students took the 
opportunity to encourage many Hondurans who were new 
Christians and see how relationships could be built in languages 
of smiles and touch rather than English. 

Habitat for Humanity took two trips during spring break. One 
was to New Orleans and the other to Wyoming. The New Orleans 
team worked on five houses and encouraged the Habitat staff 
with their positive attitudes and willing spirits. 

Rachel Oliver was one of the World Christian Fellowship Co- 
Directors who planned many of the trips. 

"It was a blessing to see how the Lord used such different trips 
and a real diverse group from the student body to come together 
and serve as a unified body but all over the world," said Oliver. "It 
reminded me of a collage — unity within diversity — as the same 
purpose of glorifying Christ was played out in different ways."

TAYLATHON

cult part of Taylathon 

42 




Taylathon 2004 almost made history this year. 

It wasn't because of fast laps or tragedy. With two weeks before the race, 
the men's sophomore team was nonexistent. An article in The Echo 
bewailing their abandonment kicked them into action, and they slapped 
a team together at the last minute. 

With the original race date rained out, Thursday, May 6, proved to be a 
glorious day for the race. Eighty degree temperatures and clear blue skies 
heralded the 56th annual Tavlathon. 

With standing room only at the starting line, the crowd was ready and 
vigorously cheered the opening 32-lap girls' race. 

Though several riders became one with the pa\ement, the girls stuck to 
their goal and finished strong with the seniors in the lead. Behind them, 
the freshmen, sophomores and juniors finished in that order. 

Immediately after the girls' finish, the men began warming up for their 
64-lap race. 

With a shout (the cap-gun was broken); the men ran to their bikes and 
started their two-hour race around the lacrosse fiekl, Reade and the Ayres 
Alumni Building. 

With competitiveness and intensity, manv riders' tempers flared as tran- 
sitions were fumbled and riders fell. Embarrassed by their shortcomings, 
several riders spurred themselves on with loud, harsh words. 

The seniors had little need for chastisement. Clad in spandex shorts and 
racing shirts, the seniors came out ready to win and did so with seem- 
ingly little effort. Their impeccable transitions and furious pedaling 
cinched the race for them. 

Unlike last year, there were few major bike problems, and the race was 
close until the end. 

Coming in for the win, senior Matt Docter stretched superman-style 
o\'er his handlebars to the cheers of the crowd. Behind him the juniors, 
freshmen and sophomores finished in that order.

Photo By Jon Dale 
It all Started with a recjuest for help. Last year. Lion John 
Clester asked Taylor for assistance with his eyeglass distribu- 
tion center. Soon after, a handful of Taylor students xolunteered 
on a regular basis. Relationships formed and a common \'ision 
was established. The students loved helping John and the other 
Lions loved the company. Acknowledging this, John, along 
with a few soon to be seniors, wanted to build something per- 
manent, and so it was planned — the establishment of Taylor 
University's Lion's Club. 

The Lion's Club International is the largest human service 
organization in the world. It is a club open to men and women 
alike with one common goal; to SERVE! More than 44,000 clubs 
exist worldwide in 189 countries. Taylor University chartered 
its club on November 21, 2003. Lion's voung and old came from 
all over the state for the charter celebration to welcome and 
excite Taylor's campus for the future. Over 50 Taylor students 
joined that night and began a new Taylor legacy. 

Since the charter celebration, much has happened. A founda- 
tion has been laid for the years to come and the future is 
promising for the Taylor Lions. A strong relationship has been 
formed between our club and the surrounding clubs. We have 
had a consistent workforce at the "Den" all year and have 
worked out all of the beginning kinks. The highlight of the year 
was sending a couple of our members to Mexico to see where 
the glasses we sort are distributed. They teamed up with some 
local Lions and did what our initial mission was to do . . . 
SERVE!

Senior Chris Chadoln and junior Jeff Stnckland improvise a comedic situation at the Rice Pilaf Christmas Show 



During the 2004-2005 season, Rice Pilaf kept fans holding their 
sides and coming back for more. The squad consisted of seniors 
Bill Green, Chris Chaudoin and Susan Steiner; juniors Jerry Jones, 
Jeff Strickland and Allison Chatfield; and sophomores Jared Bane 
and Stephanie Snider. 

The group had its first performance at the rehearsal dinner of 
Taylor alumni. Rice Pilaf hopes their marriage went better than 
that night's show. The next show was in Rice Pilaf 's home stadi- 
um, the Stuart Room. Students packed the room hungry for their 
favorite improv treat. The show was a success and gave the new 
and returning members much needed confidence. Second-vear 
member Jeremy Jones said, "1 felt five feet tall out there. That's the 
tallest I've ever been." 

The legend of Rice Pilaf's comic genius spread as far as West 
Lafayette, Indiana, where it performed one of its many church 
shows. The crowd ranged in age from 5 to 105, but Rice Pilaf finds 
no crowd too daunting. First-year member sophomore Stephanie 



Snider said, "I don't know who laughed harder, the little kid with- 
no teeth or that old guv with no teeth." 

Howe\'er, the most memorable shows for Rice Pilaf come at 
Taylor Unix'ersity. Who can forget Jared Bane's \'ampire. Bill 
Green's dance lessons or Chris Chaudoin's hair. Each residence 
hall on campus helped to make Rice Pilaf's third annual World 
Tour a success. The week pro\ided the chance for Rice Pilaf to try 
new games and bring out some of its quirkiest comedy yet. 

0\er its vears in existence. Rice Pilaf has taken a great joy in 
making the Taylor student body laugh. Rice Pilaf wants to thank 
its loyal fan base. The members of Rice Pilaf enjov e\'ery fan in the 
audience as much as they enjoy the show. The fans that wait in 
line an hour before the show make Rice Pilaf work harder to keep 
skits fresh and entertaining. The Taylor communitv has opened 
up an increciible opportunity for eight students to bring laughter 
on campus.

What is worship? That was the first question we received as chapel coordinators when the 
team came together at the beginning of the year on a retreat to Wheaton. Throughout the year 
it was a question we kept asking ourselves with each chapel we planned. Now, as I look back 
on the season we've shared, there were some pretty good answers — they they came in the 
chapels themselves. Many of those answers expanded our horizons and humbled us as we saw 
God work through different venues of talent, show His power and graciousness through our 
flaws, and calm systems of technology that occasionally act up. 

Some of the chapels that stand out to me the most are of Dr. Thonnes when he spoke for 
Spiritual Renewal week about knowing God, Jill Briscoe, Dan Allendar who spoke about the 
importance of "our story" for Relational Enrichment week. Dr. Mary Fisher, and the powerful 
Easter service with the dramatic dance that portrays the life, death and resurrection of Christ. 

Before each chapel service, much preparation and prayer go into the speakers, bands, special 
music, maintenance, sound and lighting, the music department, the campus ministries office 
and videotaping by communication arts. Most speakers are selected a year or more in advance 
and the majority of the other details get finished two weeks before each service ... at least that 
is our target. We learned so much about worshiping through prayer, community, taking risks, 
preparing well, and making mistakes. One of the hardest lessons as a coordinator is perhaps 
learning the balance between being prepared and organized, and then being flexible enough to 
change everything you have worked on so God can continue to be glorified in the service. I am 
so blessed and honored to have been part of this team to bring forth opportunities for the body 
of Christ to worship and glorify God. 

"So whether you eat or drink or whate\er you do, 
do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

The Students Activity Committee was truly 
made to serve. SAC's goal is to provide activ- 
ities and entertainment for Taylor students 
throughout the school year. 

SAC started the year by dipping out 100 gal- 
lons of ice cream and drenching them with 
favorite toppings during the first week of 
school at the annual Ice Cream Social. The 
year was rounded out in Medieval times at 
the annual Study Break in the Odle 
Gymnasium. 

A new twist was put on Halloween this year 
with SAC's Freaky Fest. Pumpkin carving, 
hay rides and costume contests made this 
event worth attending. 

SAC also sponsored traditional events this 
year such as My Generation Night in New 
York, Nostalgia Night Willy Wonka style, and 
the annual Trojan Film Festival. 

Along with these events came some new 
ones. SAC introduced the Battle of the Bands. 
The cabinet also attempted to break the 
Guinness Book of World Records for the 
longest leap frog game involving all of the 
Taylor campus. 

These are the things that the students see; 
however, what is not seen is the long hours 
and the hard work put in before the events 
come alive in the eyes of the campus. 

Meeting at least once a week throughout the 
semester, the members of SAC work together 
to make their events the best. From naming 
the e\'ent to creating programs to the final 
decorations, SAC does it all. 

Each member works for the student body, 
creating events for the enjoyment of all. God 
has blessed each member with gifts, whether 
artistic creativity, musical talent, or simply a 
joyful nature. 

Led by SAC Vice President Kaiti Bierdeman, 
Ashley Boyer, Brett Cadwell, Libby Carlisle, 
Nate Clark, Liz Culver, Eric Heavey, Nicole 
Janke, Yumi Kim, Michelle Morrison, Jaime 
Stouder, Jeff Wave, and Nick Wilson made up 
this year's SAC cabinet. 

This cabinet has worked hard and hopes its 
labor will benefit future SAC cabinets.

her past four 

years at Taylor 

and all of the 

memories she 

and the class of 

2004 will take 

away with them 

as they leave 

the campus and 

enter the world. 





Taylor Uni\'ersity held its commencement 
exercises Saturday, May 11, 2004, at 10:00 
a.m. With the sun shining brightly and the 
wind blowing, 403 students in black gowns 
followed faculty onto the field at Jim 
Wheeler Memorial Stadium. 

President Da\id J. Gvertson, Kenneth 
Flanigan, on behalf of the Boarcl of Trustees, 
and Thomas G. Jones, on behalf of the 
National Alumni Council, welcomed a large 
crowd of family, friends, faculty and staff. 

Senior Courtney Kennedy read the class 
verse: "Therefore go and make disciples of 
all nations, baptizing them in the nanie of 
the Father and of the Son and of the Holy 
Spirit, and teching them to obey everything 
I have commanded you." (Matt. 28: 19-20a) 

Christopher Bennett, associate vice presi- 
dent for academic affairs and dean of the 
Upland campus, announced one member of 
the faculty and two members of the admin- 
istration retiring after years of faithful ser- 
vice to Taylor's program of Christ-centered 
higher education: Patricia Kirkpatrick, asso- 
ciate professor and learning support center, 
Walter Campbell, associate vice president 
for student development and dean of stu- 
dents, and Dwight Jessup, vice president for 
academic affairs and dean of the university. 
Oliver Hul^bard, professor of communica- 
tion arts and director of theatre, also 
received speical recognition for his 26 years 
of service. 

The crowd also held a moment of silent 
prayer in memory of Kimberly Irvine and 
Katrina Wahl, both remembered fondly by 
the class of 2004.

Jessup's address to the crowd, "A 
Stewardship of Influence," encouraged 
graduates to consider their effect on the 
world. After his address, each graduate 
was presented with a diploma. One hun- 
dred sixty-nine students graduated with 
honors; Ke\'in Sparks and Eric Spaulding 
graduated with a 4.0 GPA. Three hundred 
ninety-one graduates were from 32 states 
and 70 percent of graduates were from 
the Midwest. One hundred seventeen 
graduates were from other states, and 12 
students listed a foreign country as their 
hometown. 

Jay Kesler, president emeritus, present- 
ed each graduate with a towel. The towel 
is a Taylor tradition symbolizing 
Christian service. Each graduate is 
encouraged to live a life of service to the 
Lord and to others. 

The memories held of the past four 
years are still fresh on the minds of the 
graduates. Monica Ghali's senior reflec- 
tion focused on the classes, social events, 
study abroad programs, off-campus liv- 
ing and many more experiences that will 
leave each graduate laughing and crying 
for years to come. 

Relationships built with faculty, staff, 
students and classmates are what will 
leave each graduate thankful for time 
spent at Taylor. God's provision and 
guidance has led the class of 2004 through 
Taylor University, and the class of 2004 
has left a "mark" on the university that 
will last.

Taylor's study abroad programs give students the 

opportunity to immerse themselves in new cultures 

for four months. Classes, sightseeing, traveling and 

fun are all part of the itinerary for these programs. 

But during these four months, students have the 
ability to experience their faith in an amazing way. 
When students are on the other sicle of the world 
and far from home, they encounter loneliness, there- 
fore, experiencing total ciependence upt^n God. 

Participants in studv abroad programs express 
how they find themsehes, but more importantly, 
they develop a more intimate relationship with the 
creator of this world.

Fine Arts 

The Taylor art department's primary strength 
lies in the faculty who ha\'e made the depart- 
ment a true family. Professors are on a first name 
basis with students allowing for a sense of com- 
munity and intense interaction. Professors are 
approachable, personable, and caring. 

Art department professors are also committed 
to challenging, strengthening, and developing 
skills in their students and to helping students 
understand their role as Christians in the arts. 
Through discussion, application, and example, 
they encourage students to "create" art from a 



Graphic Arts 



Not many students have two academic build- 
ings to call home. The dungeon in Nussbaum 
and the studios of the newly built Modelle 
Metcalf Visual Arts Building house the ambi- 
tious computer graphic art students. Our goal is 
to combine pencils and paint with computers 
and logic, a task that can be frustrating and 
rewarding. Fusing color and design with the 
powerful too! of computers, we can create stvm- 
ning and interactive artwork. Creative and stim- 
ulating web pages, logos, printed graphics, mul- 
timedia applications, and computer animations 
are among the portfolios of the majors. 

At some point, we have all asked why we are 
in this major, especially when the left and right 
sides of our brains do not cooperate. Difficult 
times have helped us grow as we bonded 
together. We have agonized over fonts and 
designs, hoping to create quality work. 



Christian worldview and to understand how faith 
permeates everything. 

In addition, they have shown a deep interest in 
their students' personal lives, offering encourage- 
ment, support, and advice in many different situa- 
tions. These situations allow Taylor art students to 
feel like a true family. The faculty members and 
the wonderful program assistant, Mary Mahan, 
take a great interest in all of the students as they 
develop the gifts God has given them. 

ErinMcGinty 



We were excited when we finally had the chance 
to study photography, Photoshop, animation, and 
flash. In the end, we have found success and 
friendship, our greatest rewards. 

The seniors went to Chicago this year, culminat- 
ing their four years of hard work. They explored 
possible careers, visiting an ad agency, photogra- 
phy studio, multimedia firm, and fine art muse- 
ums. A computer graphic artist has many oppor- 
tunities as art and technology continue to merge. 
As a senior, I feel excited to see where my skills 
and faith will take me. 

I will miss my classmates when I graduate. Over 
the years I have made friends in the major that will 
be a part of me e\'en as we separate. God uses so 
many people to touch us at Taylor, and I know the 
computer graphic artists and professors will con- 
tinue to engage others with exciting, meaningful 
work.

Art Education 

O, the long awaited Met. ..a place of refuge, refinement and 
rejoicing for the 108 majors and 11 professors who call it home. 
Taylor's commitment to the arts draws increasing talent from 
around the country. An exciting energy fills the Met with stu- 
dents majoring in fine arts, art education, and computer graph- 
ic arts. 

Not until I spent a semester away student teaching in 
Indianapolis did I fully realize the incredible blessing of Taylor's 
art department. Stimulating classes and dedicated professors 
aside, the art department, headed up by department chair. Dr. 
Rachel Smith, provides a plethora of opportunities for profes- 
sional and personal growth. 



Perhaps most inspiring to me are the undiscovered trea- 
sures of the many quality exhibits on display throughout the 
year in the Metcalf Gallery. As an art education major, 1 espe- 
cially appreciate the emphasis the department places on per- 
sonal production as well as teaching ability. Taylor is one of 
the few Christian liberal arts schools that requires its art edu- 
cation majors to exhibit a senior show, a growing and stretch- 
ing process.

Biblical Studies 



The skills learned from the biblical studies, Christian educa- 
tional ministries, and philosophy department (BSCEMPD for 
short) are a tremendous asset and these majors are unique to 
a Christian instutitution such as Taylor. 

We ha\'e the unique pri\'ilege of studying full-time the issues 
all of us will need to face at some point in our lives: what 
God's word says, how to communicate it to others, and how it 
affects the way we live. And if nothing else, it allows us to 
throw around words like Heilsgeschichte and Hapax 
legomenon while waiting in line for coffee at the Jumping 
Bean. 

Although any one of our 13 faculty members would be intel- 
ligent and educated enough to feed us his or her own beliefs 
and opinions, each instead allows us to discover and explore 
for ourselves. They are available to assist, but careful to let us 
form our own theories and opinions through research papers, 
exegetical papers, and essays, often done over coffee from the 
Jumping Bean. 

Bv being allowed to study what interests me within a given 
realm of biblical theology, I have been blessed, challenged, 
and inspired by lessons learned while doing my homework. 



Teaching through guided exploration culminates when seniors 
work on projects that directly prepare them for a chosen post- 
graduation ministry. 

Significant events this year in the department included: 
winning first place in the regional Ethics Bowl; the ever- 
popular Christian education retreats, hosted at a breath- 
taking monastery; and solving the problem of evil. 

The Linguistics Club was also formed this year for those 
working on a Biblical languages minor or preparing for a 
foreign mission field (Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Spanish, 
and Java were represented). Other highlights included 
Bible trivia showdowns between students and professors, 
late nights and early mornings in the Greek room, intra- 
venous coffee for Bib theo papers, and Dr. Dorman's 
banana cake. 

I consider myself blessed to have spent so much time 
with such cjuality faculty and students, and while I can 
hardly say I'm sorry to be graduating, I must also admit 
that I will miss Taylor Bible.

Christian Education 
and Phiilosopliy 



"Oh, so you're a Christian education 
major? Are you going to be a Sunday 
school teacher some day then?" 

It seems every CEM major has been 
asked this sometime in his or her Taylor 
career. Although being a Sunday school 
teacher may be the aspiration of some, 
there is actually a broad diversity of voca- 
tional interests represented within the 
major. CEM's 22 seniors show vocational 
interests ranging from youth ministry to 
college ministry, pastoral work to chil- 
dren's ministry to motivational speaking, 
sports ministry, community development 
to recreational ministry, to name a few. 

The CEM major is blessed to have three 
professors that are deeply committed to 
the task of equipping and nurturing stu- 
dents to further God's kingdom through 
lifelong service. These professors are 
affectionately known by their students as 
Bob, Phil, and Faye. This fall Phil Collins 



took his sabbatical in order to work on his 
doctorate and Bob Lay took his sabbatical 
in the spring to pursue studies of interest. 
To fill the gap, Taylor hired Dr. Ted Ewing 
for a year to teach classes in leadership 
development, personal foundations of 
ministry, and youth ministry. The min- 
istry experience, passion, and openness 
he brought with him into this teaching 
position enriched the department greatly. 
Every year the CEM department plans 
and facilitates a fall and spring retreat. 
This fall the retreat was held in an old 
monastery near Huntington, and the 
theme was the spiritual discipline of soli- 
tude. Students were given two extended 
times to spend in solitude with God, and 
they were also given times to enter into 
worship both with instruments and with- 
out. Other components of the retreat 
included a message by Bob Lay, a crazy 
game in the dark, funny skits by the pro- 



fessors, and a late night run to I-HOP. 
The retreat also included worship, a time 
of solitude, special dance and drama per- 
formances, games, and again, a late-night 
run to 1-HOP 

This year brought with it a change of 
tradition as 18 of the seniors headed not 
west, but rather east to Pittsburgh and 
Washington D.C. for over two weeks. 
Professor Bob Lay accompanied the 
seniors and Taylor alum J.R. Kerr, who 
presently works for a church in 
Pittsburgh, was the main facilitator of the 
trip. The seniors spent their days meeting 
with leaders of organizations and min- 
istries, talking about important life issues, 
and dreaming big. The trip was definitely 
a transformational experience for every 
participant.

Business^ Accounting 

The Business Department Mission Statement: 
"The business division prepares servant leaders to use business concepts and principles professionally and ethically wherever God 

calls them to serve and to minister the redemptive love of Jesus." 



This year the business department took on new dedication to its 
students. One student organization within the business depart- 
ment grew tremendously. Under new advisor Professor James 
Coe, the Taylor Association of Business Students (TABS) has 
become an elite organization seeking to create an environment for 
dedicated students. The goal is to give and nurture competent 
Christian leadership for the stewardship of resources. TABS busi- 
ness society enables its cabinet with the resources to reach out, 
not only to the business community, but also to the Taylor student 
community. 

The first TABS Business Conference this year occurred in 
February, and the effort of TABS organization and the support of 
the Taylor community helped make it a success. The conference 
allowed students to interact with business alumni. The National 



Business Alumni Council, made up of Taylor business graduates, 
provided speakers at the conference. Six successful Taylor gradu- 
ates shared their knowledge as they spoke to business and non- 
business students. The speakers highly revered the education they 
received at Taylor University, and the students responded with 
appreciation and enthusiasm. 

The Taylor business department continually pours all possible 
resources into their students. Excellence in education is achieved 
with perseverance and dedication. These are qualities that the 
business department faculty and TABS Cabinet of 2003-04 consis- 
tently implement in the lives of students.

Freshman Paula Roberts and junior Heidi Burkey share a laugh as Roberts alters Burkey's costume for the winter theater production. Fools. 



The communication department at Taylor continues to grow 
and change to keep up with the ever-changing world. Taylor 
offers majors in communication studies, mass 

communication and theater and is seeking to collaborate with 
the art department to create a new major to be shared by both 
communications and art. 

Department Chair Jan Fletcher stressed that the department 
must "maintain the integrity of our roots but know we have to 
work in the 21st Century." The collaboration with depart- 
ments will equip students to excel in the ever-developing 
media field. 

The Echo, student newspaper, went from using a tabloid for- 
mat to broadsheet under the direction of seniors Wes English 
and Joe Cressman. Debuting in January, the new format 
allows for more creativity and a more professional look. The 
Ilium staff under the student leadership of Jess Cuthbert chose 
the theme of Taylor-Made for this year's book. 

Other changes this year included the addition of Professor 
Sonya Paul who along with student leader Lee Hildebrand 
was instrumental in reviving the campus radio station WTUR. 
The station's programming includes student music shows and 
"Adventures In Odyssey" for the children in the audience. 

Video students were introduced to the avid audio editing 
system as the studio went digital. 

It has been a year of contrasts for the theater department. 
The fall show "And Then They Came for Me," based on an 
account from Eva Schloss was about a friend and step-sister of 
Anne Frank. The set was designed by Dr. Ollie Hubbard and 
was directed by Pletcher and Josh Stamoolis, student director. 

"The Lives We Live and the Ones We Love," pieces of a col- 



lage were directed and performed by students as a reader's 
theater production. 

Audiences nearly rolled on the floor with laughter during 
the winter show "Fools" by Neil Simon. This performance of 
absurdity was directed by Pletcher with Robby Tompkins 
assisting. 

The spring show, Shakespeare's "Loves, Labours, Lost" 
directed by guest director Dr. Joe Ricke, included building a 
semi-thrust stage upon which a traditional Shakespearean 
show would have been played 

A heart-breaking blow to the department came with the 
announcement in August that Hubbard was battling pancre- 
atic cancer. Even students who had never met Ollie received a 
taste of the impact of this gracious man on Taylor's communi- 
ty. Ollie's encouraging presence is still active in the depart- 
ment. The standard of excellence in the educational theater 
environment he has spent years demonstrating is a legacy that 
will not be lost. 

"This has been a pruning year for the department," said 
Pletcher, reflecting on the heart breaking and joyful moments 
of the year. "We know the importance of what we do [as com- 
municators] and that responsibility is not taken lightly." 

The students who come out of this department are equipped 
to communicate with the world, the most important message 
being salvation through Clirist Jesus.

Adam Salsbery concentrates as tie works diligently on a project for a computer science class. 



Things in computing science and systems this year were unlike 
any year before. In previous decades, graduates of this presti- 
gious program were practically stalked by technology recruiters 
and could expect a signing bonus and a vacation to Maui upon 
accepting a job offer. But hard times came to the information 
technology sector of America's workforce. Many of our 100 
majors shrug their shoulders and quickly try to change the sub- 
ject when asked what they're doing after graduation. 

However, all was not lost for the students of CSS. All seven of 
the brilliant professors in our department managed to find effec- 
tive ways to divert our attention from the dreary job prospects 
after Taylor. Student-tackled projects included the creation of a 
motel reser\'ation system, the de\'elopment of a membership 
and accounting program for a couple large churches in Indiana, 
and work on the sub-systems of a new satellite project. In addi- 



tion, a number of students worked to foster social activities 
in the dungeon — as paradoxical as that may seem — by 
reviving the Computer Science (COS) Club, which hosted a 
number of movie nights and guest speakers. 

There will inevitably be some who question the wisdom 
in pursuing a computer science degree with its currently 
lackluster job placement. However, if there is one thing we 
ha\'e learned, it is that change is the only constant in our 
field. Even if our economy never recovers and most IT jobs 
leave for distant shores, we will find new opportunities for 
success. Yes, we will look to the horizon with hope because 
we know that with God's help and guidance our future is 
always bright.

Education 



The bell is ringing. Another school day 
has begun. However, you are not sitting 
behind a desk wondering if there will be 
a pop quiz. This time, there are 20 pairs of 
eyes staring at you as you stand in front 
of the chalkboard. You are the teacher. 

It begins with the education depart- 
ment's goal to develop competent, caring, 
and reflective teachers prepared for 
world service. This line recited over and 
over by education majors throughout 
their four years at TU truly makes Taylor 
students become unique teachers. 

Before you can teach, you must know 
the material yourself. This is why educa- 
tion majors are recjuired to take a broad 
range of classes, from history and biology 
to music and writing. Competency does 
not just mean knowing the subject matter, 
but also how to teach those subjects. 
Luckily, the education department real- 
izes the value of practice, so education 
majors find themselves teaching con- 



stantly, both to young students and peers. 

Unfortunately, for some teachers, that is 
where the preparation stops. Many 
belie\'e that as long as you are competent 
in subject matter and the art of teaching, 
you are set. Taylor takes a different 
stance, desiring to also be caring and 
reflective. We must remember that we are 
teaching children who have feelings, 
emotions, dreams, anci lives outside of 
the classroom. 

Teachers are blessed with the opportu- 
nity every day to show Christ's love to 20 
or more children. Smiling, asking ques- 
tions about their families, and getting to 
know each child's hopes and dreams are 
some simple, yet effective, ways for 
teachers to create a relationship. This is 
one that is so excellently modeled for us 
right here at Tavlor. Professors who take 
an interest in our lives and care about 
how we are feeling and thinking are the 
ones that make a difference. 



Being a reflective teacher means contin- 
ually thinking about teaching. How can I 
improve? Do the students understand 
this concept? Am I showing love to my 
students? 

These are just a few of the questions that 
Taylor teachers are trained to ask them- 
selves. Taylor encourages its future teach- 
ers to reflect and grow each day, as teach- 
ing does not end at the dismissal bell, or 
even at the end of June. 

Though the last part of the education 
department's goal, "prepared for world 
service," can often be overlooked, it is a 
unique part of the program. Wherever 
we go and whomever we teach, we know 
that we can do it in the name of Christ, 
the Master Teacher. When that bell rings, 
whether it be in the cornfields of Indiana 
or a tribal village of Africa, all that we do, 
say, and teach is for His glory.

Taylor's English department offers a small student-teacher ratio. One might inter- 
pret this as a sign of the department's failure to attract a significant number of stu- 
dents to the program, but that would be grossly inaccurate. The relatively small 
number of majors belies the fact that some of the most popular off-campus pro- 
grams offered at Taylor are geared toward students interested in an intensive edu- 
cation in literature and the humanities. 

Exposure to culture is one of the most attractive features of the English depart- 
ment. Even those students who choose not to participate in off-campus programs 
will encounter literature that demancis they imagine life from a radically different 
point of view. Whether it is in Literature of Cultviral Diversity with Dr. Baker, 
Contemporary Literature with Dr. Dayton, or World Literature with Dr. Ricke, stu- 
dents are challenged, their tastes are refined, and their worldviews are expanded. 
Even a general edvication class like American Literature challenges the Eurocentric 
canon one may have encountered in high school. Taylor's campus may be "in the 
middle of a cornfield" as the local witticism goes, but students who take ad\'antage 
of the diverse array of classes offered in the English department are equipped with 
tools to succeed in a globally-minded society. 

Of course, the English department also helps to create a climate on campus that 
is conducive to the sharing of diverse ideas and experiences that make us a com- 
munity. The annual publication of the literary magazine Parnassus presents the 
opportunity to siiare writing with a wide audience, as well as the challenge of hav- 
ing it judged bv peers and professionals. Recently, students have enjoyed visits 
from the celebrated Christian poet Scott Cairns, lectures on the integration of faith 
and art from Bill Romanowski, and in the spring of 2004 the students in Professor 
Satterlee's Fiction Writing class interacted with short fiction author John Biguenet. 

Were it not for the in\'ol\'ement of Tavlor's English professors, the opportunity for 
students to have heir work published in a literarv journal or to study James Jovce 
in his homeland would not exist. We the students accept responsibility to continue 
a tradition of excellence.

Modem Languages 




The department of modern languages plays a key role in developing 
students to impact people from other cultures. They develop students' 
communication and literary skills so they can better understand and 
communicate with different people groups. This program prepares stu- 
dents for conversing with a non-English speaking neighbor, performing 
in a professional career or simply sharing their faith. Students find lan- 
guage related opportunities on campus such as tutors in the Academic 
Support Center, WOW Cabinet members and student workers for lan- 
guage faculty members. Also, Marion, hidiana, has a large Spanish pop- 
ulation, giving Spanish students ample occasions to ser\'e in manv wavs. 

The faculty give students one-on-one attention through mentoring, lan- 
guage tables and retreats. They bring expertise to the classroom as a 
result of extensi\'e tra\'els to countries like France, Canada, Cuba, 
Honduras, Mexico and Brazil. The faculty are involved in different ser- 
vice projects and mission trips throughout the world. Some projects 
include interpreting with CCD in El Nuevo Por\enir, Honduras, being 
involved with the Institut Jacques LeFevre in Normandy, France, and 
teaching Spanish at Upland Elementarv. 

Modern language students are distinctive in that they can complement 
many other majors and minors. Forty-seven percent of modern language 
students double major with business administration, communication 
studies. Christian education, elementary education or psychology.

Henry Ford said, "History is more or less buni<." Napoleon 
Bonaparte said it "is tlie version of past events that people 
have decided to agree upon." And still some say it is what 
we remember to prevent repeating past mistakes. 

For the history department at Taylor University, it is study- 
ing past peoples and cultures to enable us to live meaning- 
ful lives in this age. 

History is truly a valuable area of study. It pro\'ides insight 
into the human condition, and current and future events, 
and prepares one for analytical and critical thinking skills 
necessary for any profession. 

History is the building block of society that helps predict 
what the future holds. History majors are scientists in their 
own right, making valid, critically thought-out hypotheses 
regarding the future of human conduct. In short, we provide 
past perspective, bring present understanding and prepare 
for future precautions. 

What makes history a special department is the course- 
work, the analytic and critical thinking, the fellow majors, 
and the professors who foster critical and analytic learning. 
Professors strive to bring God's insight to the students, 
pointing instruction to the Ultimate Teacher. Classes are 
thought-provoking, office doors are open, and professors 
stimulate the search for truth. 

Department chair William Ringenberg said one aspect of 
learning that history students should take away from Taylor 
is seeking truth. "We're not trying to encourage [students] to 
develop analytical skills for their own sake... but ultimately 
it's a spiritual mandate to love God with your mind, and [to] 
seek the truth," he said. We strive to love God with both our 
hearts and minds. And through this love, we find the ulti- 
mate truth and understanciing in the Great Professor. 

History students are seeking the truth in many ways. 
Majors leave Taylor for successful careers in teaching, histo- 
ry-related fields such as museum directors, curators and 
archivists, humanitarian and government workers, and 
work with international organizations. History also prepares 
graduates for seminary, law school, graduate school for his- 
tory, politics, and careers in business. In all areas, history 
graduates are influencing the future based on godly princi- 
ples, helping reach the world for Christ by exposing truth.

Political Science 




Stephen Hoffmann 
Philip Loy 




In any society, individuals and groups strive to advance various interests or ideals. They 
engage in some combination of conflict and cooperation to obtain the power and resources 
needed to fulfill their goals. This is the stuff of politics. Taylor's commitment to developing 
leadership within the context of community. Its identification of civic-mindedness as a goal 
of general education provides a natural basis on which to offer study in political science. 

Taylor political science students learn how governments work, how theories of politics 
provide an understanding of complicated realities and how Christian principles apply to 
those realities. They develop abilities to make informed choices about current and future 
political issues from a Christian perspective, to participate intelligently in the political 
process at any level as a citizen, and to volunteer cir work professionally both inside and 
outside of government. 

The political science program this year has about 35 majors and minors. Despite its mod- 
est size, it provides a solid introduction to the major areas of political science: American 
politics, international politics, comparative politics, methods of political analysis and polit- 
ical philosophy. Students often combine political science with another major. Many politi- 
cal science majors are going on to law school, but others can and do go in a variety of other 
directions. As one of our graduates put it, "Political science at Taylor teaches you how to 
think, write, and talk about problems that lack easy answers. Skills like these you'll use 
whatever you do." 

Professors Philip Loy and Stephen Hoffmann are senior professors who work closely with 
students, publish and present papers at professional conferences and provide leadership in 
faculty governance. Professor Loy focuses on American politics, Professor Hoffmann on 
international politics. Taylor's very intentional commitment to the integration of faith and 
learning has been taken to heart in this department. Students practice working out how to 
relate as Christians to politics in many contexts in courses throughout the curriculum.

The physics department is a thriving, 
growing part of campus, home to engi- 
neering, systems, education and theoreti- 
cal physics majors. Perhaps because of the 
heavy course load and intensive assign- 
ments, physics majors have formed a 
unique bond of business and friendship 
with each other and the professors. 

The physics department offers myriad 
programs and projects for valuable scien- 
tific experience. Balloon launches are a 
regular occurrence, especially for the elec- 
tronics-related students, and many are 
involved with the intense TU Sat 1 
nanosatellite program Dr. Voss leads. 
Perhaps the most interesting is the oppor- 
tunity for those enrolled in Dr. Kiers' 
modern physics course to travel to the 
Fermi Lab and Argonne National Lab in 
Chicago in the fall. This overnight excur- 
sion is a chance to observe breaking-edge 
particle research and gain practical appli- 
cations of class material, as well as a 
sneak peek at internship possibilities. 

An increasingly popular aspect of scien- 
tific opportunity through Taylor is dig 
ging wells in Central America to provide 
villages with fresh water. A few light- 
house teams have committed the month 
of January to intensive training in Texas 
and then practical and spiritual outreach 
based on well digging in Guatemala. 

The light-hearted whiteboard of quotes 
running throughout the year is good evi- 
dence of the cheerful department rapport. 
The board has memorialized manv out- 
of-context quotes, like Jonathan 
Hamilton's, "Be moral when it's conve- 
nient. That's what I've learned at Taylor," 
and Dr. Kiers', "1 just put in the biggest 
number I could think of... like 57." Dr. 
Davis somehow says many profound 
things in his Math Methods class, includ- 
ing good advice like, "You can't kiss dirac 
delta [a function] on the first date. You 
have to go out with her a couple times 
first." 

The intense, challenging program of 
Taylor's physics department is rounded 
out by reasonable, relational, godly pro- 
fessors and a good atmosphere of faith 
and learning integration.

MATH 

For some it starts on Monday afternoon, for others Thursday 
night, but one truth remains: team homework is due on Friday. 
Throughout the year, it is common to see math majors creating 
support groups to complete these rigorous assignments. At first, 
there are many hours of agonizing mental stress. "Why am I a 
math major?" crosses the mind of each individual at these 
moments. Our only consolation is that we have completed these 
mental adventures before. 

So, we gather around the table in the Galleria and continue to 
write out what seems like nonsense until we see a spark. A light 
bulb goes off in someone's head, and the light gets poured out 
to the group. "Ah, yes! Of course! I should have thought to use 
the Fundamental Theorem of Cyclic Groups, too!" A connection 
has been made, and the students begin to write in unison until 
they come to the next mental mountain. This time the mountain 
is too hard for any of the team members to climb alone. For a 
while there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

It is at this time we seek a guide, someone who has been there 
before and knows the ropes. All hope has been lost, and we 
must humble ourselves before our professors, and God, and ask 
for help on chapter 9, number 32. 

We send one able group member to meet with the wise pro- 
fessor about this vicious problem. While we know this individ- 



ual's journey for knowledge will not be easy, we rest assured that 
we hax'e found the one who can withstand the barrage of ques- 
tions that will ensue. Taylor math professors have a strong record 
in the area of individual help, but it comes at the expense of the 
student actually ha\'ing to think. There are no free answers; a 
Taylor math professor is a guide for a journey through the deep 
caverns of mathematics in search for a pearl of wisdom. These 
guides ha\'e trained hard and long and are willing and able to lead 
the student through the cyclic groups, Abelian rings, and coordi- 
nate planes. 

Our representative's return is met with awe and rejoicing, as our 
hope has been justified. The small task left for this lone ranger is 
to reflect the new-found knowledge. Many times the new knowl- 
edge is met with opposition, as the group tries to understand the 
complexity, but the confident representahve always pulls through. 
What makes the Taylor math department different is the pro- 
fessors genuinely care about students and their progress. In my 
years as a math major, I have known the professors to model the 
Christian life well and to encourage students to test their beliefs 
about both math and life in general. This department is truly 
"Taylor Made."

windy walk between campus buildings by cutting through the 
halls of the Smith-Hermanson Music Center. But for the people 
who work and study in the music department, central heating 
is not the real source of the building's warm, welcoming atmos- 
phere. The faculty, staff and students of the music department 
share a commitment to love, support, and be accountable to 
one another, making the hallways feel like a second home. 

As students enter the building, they are often greeted by 
Elizabeth Brown, the music building's housekeeper. She offers 
smiles and encourages the students who pass her in the hall- 
way, referring to them as "my kids." Treating the building's 
cleanliness as her calling, she starts work at 3 a.m. to prepare 
for special events. 

As faculty open their homes, pray with students and form 
mentoring relationships, they ciisplay the same blend of per- 
sonal commitment and integrity to help students develop 
musical skills, spiritual sensitivity and self-discipline. 

It takes self-discipline to practice a musical instrument four 
hours every day. The bachelor of music in performance degree 
requires 82 credit hours of music study, including 20 in applied 
lessons, making it one of Taylor's largest majors in terms of 
required hours. Before graduation, music majors prepare a 
senior recital, an hour-long performance demonstrating the 
skills they have developed. This year, seven vocal and three 
piano performance seniors presented recitals. 

Before each performance, a faculty member offers prayer. 
Performance can be a spiritual battleground," says Dr. Leon 
Harshenin, professor of piano studies, who describes the 
Christian musician's approach as "loving the audience" 
through the act of performing. "We want to give our audience 
a beautiful gift, using the unique gifts God has given each of 
us," he says. 

Performance and mission opportunities were combined for 
two Taylor ensembles that toured overseas during the 2004 
spring semester. Sixty-three members of the Chorale spent 
their spring break performing in Greece, while the Taylor 
Ringers presented programs in the Czech Republic and 
Ukraine. 

Students' daily experiences foster unity. Between classes, 
thev congregate on the hallway sofas to do homework, eat 
lunch and chat. The music building does not empty when 
classes are over for the day. Late night practicing, long talks, 
project collaboration, impromptu performances for peers, and 
even tea parties form the building's night life. "Music majors 
put in a lot of hours here," said one junior. "When you spend 
this much time with a group of people, they become like fami- 



ly-"

Psychology 



They are seven, led by Dr. Cosgrove, all 
holding their own. Taylor boasts a psy- 
chology faculty with which I am proud to 
have studied. After spending time in their 
classes, one wonders how the diverse 
teachers work together as a team. The 
answer . . . they share more than their 
many years of education and teaching 
experience; they share the fellowship and 
laughter of brothers and sisters in Jesus. 

This year brought new and continuing 
endeavors through our 145 majors and 36 
minors. Professors Herrmann and 
Moeschberger progressed towards their 
doctorates. Dr. Cosgrove continued in his 
testimony of healing and recovery from 
his brain aneurysm. Dr. Dungan's 
advanced research team of students was 
selected to present at the annual 
American Psychological Association con- 
ference in Hawaii, and three groups of 
students presented their original research 
at the Butler University Undergraduate 



Conference. Dr. Lund pioneered a new 
course examining the practice of religion 
from a psychological viewpoint. The 
Psychology Club reformed and started 
social, philanthropic, and career/profes- 
sional development committees. Kathy 
Bernaix was welcomed as program assis- 
tant. 

In what can only be deemed as miracu- 
lous. Senior Psychology Seminar wooed 
Dr. Maloney from the emerald isle of 
Ireland back for engagement, deep intro- 
spection, and conclusion in the class- 
room. Seniors read Telling Secrets by 
Frederich Beuchner and Ruthless Trust 
by Brenning Manning in a seminar that 
encouraged graduating students to 
dream boldly and creatively. 

In my pursuit of graduate school, many 
professors have imparted advice for 
approaching interviews, preparing for 
the pre-grad student's arch enemy, the 
GRE, and having given support in the 



spirit of "you can do it!" 

Dr. Dungan unknowingly encouraged 
me several times when she candidly 
spoke of being a mother and a professor. 
Dr. Snyder's tireless prayer and commit- 
ment to proper motivation helped me 
realize statistics as a foreign language 
without losing all respect for my intel- 
lectual capacity. But more than all of 
that, 1 will always remember Dr. 
Maloney's request for us to "be kind." 

Through academics, integration, 
research, mentoring, I received a mes- 
sage: we are whole beings; we are spirit 
and flesh; we are mind and matter. If we 
are to be truly excellent people, in the 
Lord, of the Lord, no part of our human- 
ness can be ignored. Thank you to each 
of the seven for their time, energy, and 
heart.

Biology 



Welcome to the first floor of Nussbaum! Walk the halls with 
me for a moment as we experience the home of a biology 
major at Taylor. All of one's senses are aroused in this hallway. 
See the albino snake, the video of biology majors, walls of pic- 
tures. Hear the music from the labs, the laughter, and occa- 
sional moaning of students. Smell the comparative anatomy 
cats. Taste Dr. Reber's squid being fried up after dissection. 
Feel Dr. Burkholder pricking your finger for a blood analysis 
lab. A walk through the biology hallway never ceases to be 
stimulating and lively. These sensory experiences greatly 
enhance learning in the classroom. 

From freshmen in cell biology to the seniors making future 
plans, the biology department is one of dedicated students 
and professors. The diversity of students' interests within biol- 
ogy range greatly, from medicine to education, from public 
health to allied health. 

The capstone of the biology major is during January, when 
Dr. Whipple directs the research and ethics class. At the end 
of a month of work, the class takes a trip to northern 
Michigan. Here the biology majors experience time together

as never before. With snow up to the waist, you will find an 
intense game of broomball, inexperienced cross country skiers 
trying out the trails, sledding down a steep incline, and snowball 
fights. Here in the winter wonderland, biology is appreciated in 
a renewed and fabulous way. 

We have been taught great amounts of information about the 
intricate parts of the cell, the systems, bacteria, genes, and so 
much more in our four years at Taylor. Yet unless we retain the 
ability to step back and look at the world as a whole, we miss the 
true beauty of that which we have learned. 

Biology major or not, we experience biology everyday! God 
reveals himself in great ways-through the beauty and the intri- 
cate design we see in nature. Our knowledge and appreciation of 
God's power and wisdom have been enhanced by our time in 
class and elsewhere. 

Take a walk with me through the biology hall and experience 
God in a new way...

No other major at Taylor has created a program that so consis- 
tently yet gently pushes students outside the "Taylor bubble" to 
serve others in an empathetic and practical way. 

The social work department has a program with a variety of 
classes that promote personal growth as well as academic devel- 
opment. The classes pull from many different areas of study, such 
as psychology, sociology and biology. Through these challenging 
and thought-provoking courses, students develop valuable criti- 
cal thinking skills and creative problem solving techniques that 
will help them, not only in their future careers, but also in all other 
areas in life. Many of the classes use practical experience as a 
learning tool. The students are able to go out into the community 
and experience first hand what social work is all about through 
volunteer experiences and community projects. Once students 
finish the program, they will be equipped to handle a career in 
social work.

The social work department has an exceptional facutly. Whether 
through lectures, group discussions, field trips, Christmas parties, 
or one-on-one contact, the faculty in the social work department 
demonstrates a lexel of respect and care for their students that is 
uncommon in other institutions. The professors strive to know 
each of their students in an intentional way, which deepens the 
respect of the students, as well as creates a close and personal 
atmosphere. 

Because the social work department is fairly small, in compari- 
son to other departments, the students share many classes togeth- 
er. This contributes to close and lasting relationships with each 
other. After even a few classes, deep friendships are formed. 

When a social work student leaves Taylor, they will be more 
than equipped to shine a light into the world through action, not 
just knowledge.

Where on Taylor's campus can you find a major that encourages 
students to think beyond the required readings and take action in 
the community? The Sociology Department! My past four years 
have been filled with interesting books, stimulating class discus- 
sions and a plethora of chances to study off campus. 

The two full time professors. Dr. Ste\'e Bird and Dr. Mike Jessup, 
take personal interest in each student. I always feel comfortable 
stopping by their offices to discuss anything from class schedules 
to homework questions or future plans. My sociology classes 
have prepared me to move on to the next level. From my experi- 
ences in the classroom to my off-campus study in Los Angeles, 
California, my professors ha\-e guided me towards my goals. 

Both Dr. Bird and Dr. Jessup welcome students into their homes. 
In fact, I have been to both of their houses for sociology gather- 
ings to get to know other students in my major and have time to 
share pizza or snacks and watch mo\'ies. Those times built our 



relationships not just as teachers and students, but also as broth- 
ers and sisters in Christ. 

Upland is great, but everyone needs to get away sometimes, and 
being a sociology major provides plenty of opportunities for 
learning and having fun off-campus. We took a trip to Chicago for 
urban exposure, and attended conferences in Pasadena, 
California. Also, we went to New Orleans, Louisiana, for the 
CCDA (Christian Community Development Association) to see 
how Christian ministries and organizations take social action to 
show Christ's love to the inner city. And, staying involved local- 
ly, we visited the Grant County Rescue Mission and Kay's 
Kitchen. Stretching my sense of community beyond Uplanci to 
reach the larger global community, the sociology department has 
helped mold me into a better servant.

The fitness and wellness major at Taylor University is grow- 
ing and changing. In the last year, e\'en the name of the major 
was updated to tiie well-accepted term of exercise kinesiology. 
Along with this change, adjustments were made in the require- 
ments of the field to allow students to take classes specific to 
their career interests. This allows a more individually specific 
education and one that is preparing exercise kinesiology stu- 
dents for their future in a practical way. 

The small class sizes foster close relationships between pro- 
fessors and students. The physical education and human per- 
formance professors pro\ide more than just an education for 
the students. These professors are concerned about their stu- 
dents' success, their personal lives, and their spiritual well- 
being. They make themselves available and go above and 
beyond what is expected of them. Seniors in the process of find- 
ing post-graduation employment are often notified bv their pro- 
fessors of job opportunities. The professors look at the potential 
of the wellness students and encourage them to go after that 
potential. 

It has been exciting to see a growing interest in this major as 
incoming students are becoming more aware of its existence. 
Not only does exercise kinesiology have so much to offer the 
students, but it offers a lot to all of Taylor and the surrounding 



community. An awareness of the need for exercise and well- 
ness has grown in our society, and people want to make 
changes in their lifestyles. In response to this, several students 
have interacted with the community via personal training or 
working with children as part of their practicum require- 
ments. These experiences have benefited not only the students 
as they practically apply what is being taught in the class- 
room, but they also positively influence and educate the com- 
munity. 

The excitement of this major has heightened with the build- 
ing of the new Kesler Student Center, which will allow for an 
improved learning en\'ironment. The PHP professors have 
helped make many of the ciecisions regarding this center, so it 
has extra meaning and significance to our major. It has also 
serveci as a reminder of God's timing and provision, for He 
has provided the necessary funds in His time and will contin- 
ue to as we trust in Him. 

1 have been blessed through being a fitness and wellness 
major. From the material studied, to the relationships with my 
classmates and professors, to the experiences I have had, I 
have been stretched and challenged.

Senior Reflection 



The things I've learned at Taylor can be summed up in a 
few words: "The more I know, the less I know." This can 
mainly be attributed to my relationship with the Lord. 
Coming to Taylor transported me from India, where 
Christians are only 2.3 percent of the population, to an 
institution where Christians are the majority. This adjust- 
ment was freeing but at the same time highly constricting. 
It was freeing because I could worship the Lord without 
social constraint, but constricting because I was surround- 
ed by a new materialism fueled by wealth. Going from 
being surrounding by beggars who are missing at least a 
limb to people who have more than they could ever imag- 
ine created an ache which I could only take to the Lord. 

I questioned the Lord numerous times at Taylor, asking, 
"What did I do to deserve to be born to wonderful parents 
and a home while a child in India, Africa or even the 
United States is born in deep poverty?" It created an unrest 
in me which caused me to distance myself from the Lord. 
The unfairness of this world is disturbing, but it's comfort- 
ing to know that God is there. The phrase "your heart 
should break at the things that break the heart of Jesus" has 
been repeated in my mind throughout my Taylor years. 
The realization that the negative things of this world break 
God's heart more than imaginable provides me with assur- 
ance that He is in control. 
^ _ 



Through interactions with friends, hearing chapel speak- 
ers and reading books by George MacDonald and C.S. 
Lewis, I've also been challenged in my outlook on the envi- 
ronment. Our society has raped the earth that is meant to 
glorify God. My close friend has constantly challenged me 
throughout my years at Taylor to look at the earth as a glo- 
rious creative expression coming directly from God each 
day. I have found it hard to always see beauty in my sur- 
roundings but seeing things through her lenses for beauty 
has enriched my own ability to see. 

At last, I take away from Taylor evidence of God's unfail- 
ing provision. On my Taylor application form, I placed a 
where it indicated the amount I had for my college educa- 
tion. Semester after semester, God faithfully placed people 
in my life who helped me financially with my education. 
God, on so many occasions, picked me up from my knees 
and reminded me of who He was and is. I am very thank- 
ful for those times when I literally had to get on my knees 
and cry out to God because only when I was so desperate 
and broken could He mend me. Due to those times, I was 
able to have a deeper understanding of God.

Senior Reflection 

I came to Taylor thinking I had it all figured out, and I leave feeling the opposite. I now realize that I 
probably know less than when I first arrived four years ago. In fact, there are only a few things I am cer- 
tain about, as the final hours tick away from my Taylor career. 

1 leave Taylor more certain of my faith than ever before. Yes, I moaned and groaned about having to 
take so many Bible classes, but I learned so much from all of them. I can without a doubt say that Taylor 
has prepared me for a life in the secular world. 

Another thing that I am certain about is that I have learned more in the four years that I have spent at 
Taylor than the prior 18 years of my life combined. Surprisingly, a vast majority of what I learned took 
place outside of the classroom. Taylor was not just an education in the field of communications, but more 
importantly, it was also an education in life. I believe that I learned just as much, if not more, from late 
night conversations at Handy Andy with friends in need than I did in any classroom on Taylor's campus. 

Finally, I leave Taylor certain that it was the right place for me. The decision I made over four years ago 
to come to Taylor, which at the time had me nervous and even a little bit scared, has shown itself to be the 
right choice. The lasting friendships I have made, the countless hours spent working for the intramurals 
department, events like Airband and Second West's Tonight We Ride, and even just the quiet weekends 
spent pleasure reading and having heart to heart conversations with my closest friends have left no room 
for me to doubt my decision to come to Taylor. 

As a senior, I feel it is also my responsibility to impart some wisdom on those of you who have time left 
at this wonderful place. Taylor is just that, a wonderful place. Relish it, cherish it, and when presentations 
and tests feel like they are going to smother you, remember that Taylor is one of the most amazing places 
on the face of this planet. Invest in people, for the relationships you establish on this campus far exceed 
the value of all of the money you have spent on books or ever will. Finally, remember to let those impor- 
tant to you know just how much you value your friendship with them. Above all else, make the most of 
the time you have here, for it comes and goes far too c]uickly.

Senior Reflection 



It seems like such a short while ago when I arrived at Taylor for the first time, parked in front of Olson 
and began unloading my things. What would have been an all-day event was finished in a few hours, 
thanks to the help of the friendly faces in yellow t-shirts. I knew that Taylor would change my life. 

From the early morning hours of Foundations of Christian Thought to the late evenings of Senior Seminar, 
niy Taylor experience has been filled with incredible moments and wonderful people. 

My freshman year was highlighted by my first Airband experience. I had a great time being a part of the 
show with Third East Olson. With multiple dress rehearsals, the actual show, and an encore performance, 
I could still watch The Devil Went Down to Georgia over and over again. 

The friends I made my freshman year have carried over into the years that followed. Sophomore year 
was filled with random road trips, life on Third Berg, Bulls vs. Wizards (but no Michael), Taylor women's 
basketball and a spring break in Texas. I even stuck around for graduation. 

The shift from my sophomore year to junior year seemed to be a major transition from underclassman to 
upperclassman. I felt so old. Over J-term, I went on the Literary London trip. With Dr. Ricke leading the 
way, we walked the roads of London, Canterbury, and York. 

Senior year, like the previous three, has been amazing. It's been different in that I have been able to live 
off campus, eat at the Grille, and write insanely long papers. I've also been able to appreciate the little 
things here at Taylor.

Senior Reflection 

Whenever the characteristics of Taylor University are listed, community is usually at the top. When I look back 
at my years at Taylor, community is still at the top of my list, but it wasn't until my last two years here that 1 began 
to get a glimpse of what an intentional Christian community could be. 

During the summer after my sophomore year at Taylor, I went to Italy to study as part of a program unaffiliat- 
ed with Taylor. I saw what a non-Christian community looked like and embraced it. On the flight home, I saw 
again my utter depravity and realized that my entire existence disgusted me. I had secure friendships, was in a 
small group, and had an accountability partner, but I knew that I had nexer been completely open with one per- 
son in my entire life. 1 decided the time had come to face my struggles, face myself, and face God. My world was 
revolutionized. 

The Taylor I returned to for my third year was essentiallv no different than the Taylor of my first two years, yet 
the communitv I returned to began to de\'elop a new sense of depth and there was an intimacy that before had 
remained hidden from mv view. The greatest difference was that I began to uncierstand what it means to be real. 
If the relationships I had were going to continue to grow, they neecied to mcive to a new level of realitv. 1 encour- 
aged this idea of complete honesty with cithers, but I wasn't able to follow through on mv side. The challenge 1 
had set up for myself was too scary, and I continued in relationships that looked vulnerable and open, but I knew 
there was still a deeper level that I was avoiding. It wasn't until the end of mv junior year that this wall was bro- 
ken. I wasn't the one to tear down this wall. I was still worried about how I would be percei\'ed. Indeed, there is 
risk in being real, and it usually seems much easier to keep the fai^ade. But in what I consider to be the greatest act 
of friendship ever shown me, I was confronted. 

Since that day, life has been different. The concept of true, real. Christian love began to move from an ideal in 
my mind to a reality in my everyday existence, and as a result, 1 felt an unbelievable new freedom. I began to won- 
der why everyone dicin't experience this liberty, bringing truth onto the table and dark into the light. I came back 
for my senior year with a new sense of what it meant to be real. If we're not being real, we're not only hiciing our 
true selves from others, but we're also missing out on the freedom that is on the other side. It took me three years 
to really discover what it meant to li\e in Christian community, but now that 1 ha\e had that experience, I am 
thankful for my time at Taylor and will honestly ne\'er be the same again.

Senior Reflection 

I am ready. This is the thought that hit me as I was driving back from Easter break. I am ready. Ready for what? 
For whatever God brings my way. For life after Taylor. For taking all that I ha\'e been taught and making use of 
it. I am ready to embrace the future that is so wide open it's all at once exhilarating and all at once overwhelming. 
For it is in my uncertain future that I belie\'e Goci will prove himself faithful and good. 

Getting to the point that 1 can say that I am ready, that I can say, "Come on God, hit me with whatever it is I was 
meant to do," was a long time coming. Almost four years, really. The things that I ha\'e learned along the way — 
the good, the bad, and the everyday stuff in between — have all prepared me for whatever is out there on the dis- 
tant horizon of my life. 

I ha\'e learned that sometimes you have to plan to he spontaneous, because Handy Andy stops making bread- 
sticks at 10. . . that love is lived in the ordinary details of life, because that's what defines us. I have learned how 
to fit four months of my life into two suitcases, because in Spain all you need is a comfy pair of shoes and a pass- 
port. I ha\'e learned that despite what my circumstances say, God can be trusted. 

I have learned that traveling is great, but returning home is e\'en better . . . that the most important part of lov- 
ing the unlo\'able is recognizing their humanity. 1 have learned that umbrellas are useless in Upland. 1 ha\e 
learned that God is in the waiting, and oftentimes restlessness is God's way of preparing me for the next big thing 
. . . that it's OK to need people, because it's in my vulnerability that I am strengthened. 

Looking back, I can see, sometimes very clearly and sometimes hardly at all, that these lessons, while not easily 
learned, are necessary for growth. They ha\e prepared me for whatever I will encounter in the rest of my tomor- 
rows. So I will turn my face to the sky and declare that 1 am reaciy. More than anything else in my life, I know this 
much to be true: I am ready, but only because God has prepared me to be so. And only because He will be there 
to guide each step I take. Today, tomorrow, and for the rest of my days, may I greet each sunrise with one phrase: 
1 am ready.

It's hard to believe that in six weeks I will never 
again be a student at Taylor University. Of course, 
1 ha\e looked forward to graduation for months, 
but now that it is looming closer, I am feeling bit- 
tersweet. 

Initially, I never wanted to attend Taylor. I 
always thought that Wheaton College was for 
me, but my mom listened to Jay Kesler's radio 
program on our local Christian station, and near- 
ly every day she would say, "Bethany, 1 really 
think you should look at Taylor." After visiting 
both schools several times, I knew without a 
doubt that God wanted me at Taylor, and I am so 
glad 1 listened to His leading. Coming to Taylor 
has been one of my most life-impacting decisions. 
Four years have gone so fast! Each has been 
marked by different challenges and xictories. I 
am thankful for godly prcifessors who have 
encouraged me. Thriiugh them, I have learned 
much about my ccintent area, music. But more 
than that, 1 have learned to use it as a tool to reach 
a hurting world. They have showed me how 
music can tiring refreshment to myself, others, 
and it glorifies God when I work hard and offer 
my best work. 

I am also grateful for the friends that have sur- 
rounded me. These are people who will be life- 



long friends; friends who have blessed me, loved 
me, laughed with me, cried with me, and showed 
me the love of Christ. 

It's hard to select a few favorite memories. As a 
freshman, I convinced Michelle that we should 
ding-dong ditch my crush's off-campus house. 
Instead, we got pulled over by the Upland police. 
Late-night Wal-Mart runs were frequent entertain- 
ment for Deborah and me, and we always stopped 
at Taco Bell on the way home. I remember walking 
to Handy Andy at midnight in the rain with 
Stephen to buy Krispy Kremes, and eating more 
than we should have! How could I forget study 
groups with Laura and Becca, where we would 
end up on the floor convulsing in laughter? And 
my freshman crush? He's now my husband. We 
too ha\'e our favorite Taylor memories: long walks 
around Upland, stargazing from the Arboretum, 
and our weekly Friday night pizza from TOPPIT. 

Yes, these and many more memories are close to 
my heart. As 1 prepare to leave, I know there will 
be plenty of tears as I say goodbye to the life and 
people that I have lox'ed for four years. Yet I also 
know that Taylor, and all that it means to me, will 
forever be imprinted on my heart.

Q.ff..Q^lT!Pus 



Q: What's so great about living off 
campus? 

A: More independence, more space, 
the possibility of being by yourself for 
a while, a kitchen, distance from dorm- 
related activities (hall meetings, pick-a- 
dates, wing hook-ups, etc.) 

Q: Do you ever feel out of "the loop"? 
Why or why not? 

A: I don't feel out of the loop at all; it's 
not as if Upland is this tremendous 
place you can get lost in. The campus is 
so accessible and open that if there's 
anything going on, I can walk up in the 
middle of it and not feel out of place. 
It's nice to have this distance — I feel 
like I have a lot more privacy.

Supper isn't typically regarded as being a religious 
observance. On First Bergwall, however, dinner time is 
a sacrament of the BHONE. With cries of "E-ot!" echo- 
ing down the hall, a mass of guys pours over the walk- 
way to be first in line for some delicious D.C. food. The 
absence of those who cannot make it to eat at 5 p.m. is 
always duly noted. To break from tradition and eat 
with a special female friend is rewarded with a tray- 
full of silverware. 

The BHONE has other traditions as well. 
Mississinewa High School FCA, the annual Bond 
marathon, and birthday spankings are just a few. Our 
activities as a floor give us a sense of identity that is 
reinforced by the way God uses the 35 men of our mini- 
community in forming us as unique individuals. It 
should be obvious to any visitor that genuine friend- 
ship and fellowship are integral parts of life on the 
BHONE. It is through our traditions, fellowship, and 
friendships that God is molding the men of the 
BHONE into serious and intentional followers of 
Christ.

I knew, as a personal assistant, that our floor was in for an inter- 
esting year when I met the freshmen and transfers that were join- 
ing Second Berg. One could say that for the past year or two our 
floor's climate has been dominated by outgoing personalities who 
enjoy the finer things in life: loud music, video games, late nights, 
intramurals, watching movies, 
yelling down the hall, etc. 

Those who joined us on Second 
Berg this year did not fit this 
mold, however. They tended to 
have a shy spirit, a disciplined 
work ethic, a philosophical mind, 
or a combination of the three. I 
recall, on our floor retreat early in 
the fall semester, telling these 
freshmen and transfers not to let 
us change them. They needed to 
change us, and in many ways they 
have. 

Certainly, the same dominant 
personalities still enjoy kicking 
back, having fun, and being loud. 
But, the climate has been compli- 
mented by one of serious thinking and discussion. For the first 
time, I've had genuine conversations with my floormates about 
welfare, politics, war, worship, education, entertainment selection, 
gender roles, and theology. This new mixture of personalities, atti- 
tudes, and behaviors has proved to be a bit volatile at times; but I 




hope we have learned from one another and that we have begun 
to see life through the eyes of those who aren't necessarily just like 
us. 

Before the year started, we decided that the theme of our floor 
would be "2B continued," trving to focus on the eternal life that 

g awaits us as believers, while also 
attempting to "continue" the 
environment of Second Berg that 
we had all enjoyed in years past. 
Thankfully, in this episode of 
our floor's history, it wasn't just 
the same old characters playing 
the same old roles in the same 
old storyline. No, this year was 
one in which a small crowd of 
new faces arrived on the scene, 
giving the floor a new feel and a 
new perspective that was much 
needed. Hopefully, in the years 
to come, the men of Second Berg 
will continue to learn from one 
another, laugh together, and 
simply enjoy life as brothers. 
Great things are happening on our floor, and I have faith that they 
will continue. This year might be over, but another is on its way. I 
guess you might say the story of Second Berg is "2B contin- 
ued "

Dorm life makes up a crucial aspect of Taylor's com- 
munity. The bonds and friendships formed are not like 
any other and are long lasting relationships. 

"Third Berg is unique, " 
says Julia Waterman, Third 
Berg personal assistant. 
"The girls on our floor 
make the effort to get to 
know one another. We don't 
live on wings or have com- 
munity bathrooms and in a 
sense are isolated from one 
another." 

Waterman says, "Some 
might find it to be a prob- 
lem but the girls have 
proven that distance brings 
people together." 

Isolation is not a word 
that describes Third Berg. 
Waterman says the girls 
take responsibility for one another as well as encourage 
and challenge each other. 
Michelle Jongsma has seen the floor come a long way 




over her college career and has nothing but affirmative 

words. 

Jongsma says, "I have seen girls put themselves out 

there not to be polite but 
because they genuinely 
care about each other. They 
all have differences yet a 
common purpose to serve 
Christ together, which is a 
wonderful thing to wit- 
ness." 

Mallory McClain notes 
that each dorm may be dif- 
ferent from one another but 
each has a specific purpose 
that contributes to Taylor in 
its own exceptional way. 

"I love living on this 
floor," says McClain. "I love 
the fellowship, the free- 
dom, the fun, but above all 

else, 1 love the friendships I've made and I wouldn't have 

it any other way."

Fourth Bergwall set a mission this year to strength- 
en as a true community of Christ, to serve not only the 
people on our floor, but our surroLmding community 
of Upland as well. Some of 
the best memories we have 
made this year have been 
raking leaves in elderly peo- 
ple's yards and delivering 
cards to the nursing home. 

Outreach has been a vital 
aspect of our floor, but I real- 
ly saw a true testament of 
God's body after my car 
broke down earlier this year. 
I could not afford the 
repairs, and the bill meant 
that I could not participate 
in any off campus activities. 
I had been praying that 
God would provide me with a way to work to pay off 
the statement I would be receiving at the end of the 
month. He blessed me beyond all my hopes. 




Three women on the floor interrupted my studying 
to present me with money they had pooled together to 
pay for the repairs on my mini-van! Not only that, but 

they told me there was more 
coming and over the next 
week I found four more 
anonymous envelopes in 
my mailbox with cash. I was 
completely speechless after 
receiving the first envelope, 
and had no idea how to 
react or thank any of them. 
Running up and down the 
hall with tears streaming 
and my mouth open wide 
with a smile, I could not 
control my joy. Forty-seven 
college women banned 
together for the needs of 
one. How amazing is the body of Christ!

iby when you think about it, water cascading from a 
Ipe Niagra Falls, but then you realize that the water is 
^^!^3shmg down the hall towards your roon\. By the time the 
w^ter finally gets shut off, there are four inches of icy water in 
the hails . . . and thus, the wrath of Flood Helga was unleashed 
upon Cellar. 

While we may deal with yearly floods. Cellar is still the coolest 
place on campus. 

What other girl floor on campus gets a name instead of a num- 
ber? None. What other floor on campus has a fully equipped 
apartment for student use? None. Cellar is one of a kind and 
definitely is in a league of its own. 

Dubbed this year as OSE (Zero South English), Cellar has its 
own unique flare. 

While Third English may be known for its broomball, we're 
known for our Hollywood Pick-a-date. Every spring, Cellar 
hosts a "no-cost" pick-a-date where the girl and her date dress 
up as a famous Hollywood couple. Couples such as Barbie and 
Ken, the Brady Bunch kids, and even Homestar Runner and 
Marzipan have made an appearance in the past. 

The couples go out in groups and video tape each other act- 
ing out their characters. At the end of the night, everyone 
watches the videos and chooses the best one. 

So if you are ever wandering around English sometime, come 
down the stairs and visit. We do have windows!

I am happy to have had First North for 
my home the past four years. This wing is 
a super special place. I am so thankful to 
have been blessed each year with a great 
group of Godly girls with whom to live, 
and this year was no different. 

In the fall. First North welcomed 10 
freshmen to the wing. Their personalities 
combined with those of the upperclass- 
men added spunk creating a warm, fun 
and joyful living environment. 

Highlights of this year were a solidly 
built girls' football team with a lot of talent 
and pizzazz; a fall formal to a Footloose 
production in Chicago; times spent with 
our wing hook-ups, the Trudeau family; 
and a weekend retreat to Jay and Janie 
Kesler's house. I will remember living on 
First North fondly in years to come.

First. South English 



The contestants waited nervously, checking their cos- 
tumes for the final time. The music started, the host 
spoke, and the beauty pageant began. First came Miss 
Alternative, followed by Miss PMS, Miss Tourist, Miss 
Southern Belle, and Miss Super Secret Agent. It quick- 
ly became clear that this was not your average beauty 
pageant. The Miss First 
South Pageant never is. 

Miss First South is an 
annual tradition on our 
wing and is a night full of 
creativity and laughter. 
The audience was enter- 
tained as the contestants 
paraded in everyday 
wear, evening wear, and 
bathroom wear. They also 
learned the merits of 
"fan-flirting," perfected 
Spanish phrases, watched 

a secret mission and mar\eled at some unique dances 
during the talent segment of the competition. 
Contestants answered challenging questions such as 
"What do you think of the stereotype of the obnoxious 
American?" 




No one was surprised when Miss PMS (Jennie Nicodem) 
was crowned Miss First South 2004. "Jennie's character was 
something that everyone obviously could relate to and 
being with a group of girls made it even more fun," said 
host Jenny Fiunt. 

Personnel assistsant, Abigail Crenshaw, planned and 

organized this year's event. 
"It's a great tradition that helps 
girls loosen up and have fun 
and get to know each other in 
a more relaxed setting," she 
said. It is also a tradition that 
is sure to continue for years to 
come. But if this year's compe- 
tition is any indication, future 
members of First South will 
have to work especially hard 
to recei\'e the co\'eted title. 
"Miss First South is a tradition 
that has left me with some 
great memories," said reigning queen Jennie Nicodem. "I 
plan to bear my title proudly."

How does one describe 2003-2004 on the wing of Second 
North English? Perhaps I could say fun and crazy, full of 
late night Handy Andy runs and random quick-picks to 
Walmart that end up in a failed attempt at a scavenger 
hunt. Perhaps 1 could 
say challenging, with 
frequent discussions 
about religion, Taylor, 
and e\'en politics. I 
could even say quiet 
from time to time . . . 
wait, no I can't. 

It would be pointless to 
try to describe the wing 
without mentioning the 
beautiful young women 
that occupy it. What 
makes Second North so 
special after all? Is it 
Katie O.'s beaming smile 
when she walks into a room? Is it Val's giving spirit or 
Sharon's fun loving attitude? Could it be Mallory's desire 
to serve the Lord with all of her heart? Perhaps it's Jacki's 
passion, Darla's randomness or Kelly's humility. Maybe it 
could be Kathryn's wit, Brittany's energy, Kari's cute little 
laugh, or Christine's hysterical sarcasm. Is it Alex's love of 




life or Julie's easy-going spirit? Katie S.'s commitment 
and Amy's adorable smile certainly contribute as well. It 
could be Anna's many talents or Rachel's incjuisitiveness 

or Debo's outgoing atti- 
tude. Maybe it's 
Lauren's selflessness, 
Jami's wisdom, or Sara's 
desire to be like Christ. 
Is it Lydia's ability to 
make everyone around 
her feel comfortable and 
loved or could it be 
Emily's desire to learn 
and be stretched? 

Certainly each member 
of Second North brings 
something to the table to 
make it unique and spe- 
cial. But I am sure all 
these things combined 
make it a place where 1 feel not only comfortable, but 
abundantly blessed. So thank you, Second North for your 
love, for your individuality and for your support this 
year. You are truly my home away from home.

Second. Center JE.nc| I i^^^^ 



Before I arrived in Upland in September, I had one 
wish for God to become more real in my life, and to 
do immeasurably more than I could ask or imagine. 
On September 16, 2003, two weeks into my freshman 
year at Taylor, I got my wish. When I fell to the 
ground during an intense intramural football game, 
my life took a sudden twist. As soon as I was able to 
stand, a few girls whisked me off to the nearest hos- 
pital. 

As I grimmaced in pain and cried like a baby, those 
girls stood by my side. When we were told that I had 
broken my collarbone, nothing could have sounded 
worse to my ears. Later that night, I was over- 
whelmed with the concern of my teammates — girls 1 
barely knew. I received many encouraging notes and 
visitors those first few days. They poured out their 
love and affection, and I could not understand it. 

It became apparent that God was trying to teach me 
something besides how to be a good patient. God 



decided to break my independent spirit when he 
allowed my collarbone to be broken. 

Throughout the next three months, I needed con- 
stant care and attention. I could not shower, dress 
myself, carry my books, hold my tray in the D.C., or 
even lie down to sleep without the help of my wing- 
mates. I was forced to rely on them. I barely had to 
ask, and they gave me all they had to give. Second 
Center English showed me the most important thing: 
love. 

The girls of Second Center English gave up their 
time and used their energy to help me. God was 
obviously doing more through this experience than I 
could ever have asked or imagined. He used this 
incredible wing of Godly women to bring me 
through a difficult experience, and it has made all the 
difference.

We like to think of Second South 
English as a pretty fun place to live. 
Sometimes, it's the little things we do to 
build one another up or make each other 
laugh. Other times, it's the bigger things 
like our Bible studies or wing retreats 
that make Second South a great wing of 
girls. 

One word that comes to mind when I 
think of Second South is unity. From day 
one the girls went out of their way to 
make new people feel welcome and 
build up the wing as one. Throughout 



the year as girls left to travel and others 
moved on, the unity and the welcoming 
spirit remained the same. It doesn't real- 
ly matter if we are ha\'ing a wing dinner, 
a pick-a-date, small groups or just hang- 
ing out together, we are friends and gen- 
uinely care about each other. 

God has been good to bring all of us 
together this year. We each have grown 
in our own way, but also as a wing of 
girls together.

Ask any freshman at the beginning of the year 
where he or she is from, and, almost always, there is 
a pause and then the question, "You mean where 
home is, or where I live on campus?" It's a simple 
question, but it is one that points to a greater reality 
at Taylor. 

Wing/floor life is unique here. We on Third North 
have a good grasp on uniqueness. We are missionary 
kids, pastor's kids, farm kids, city kids, and more, 
coming from all over the country and world. Our 
diversity of opinion and experience provides mean- 
ingful opportunities to broaden ciur horizons as we 
have gotten to know each others' stories. 



We take pride in our commonality, too. Whether 
it's wing dinners, our custom-designed 3NE sym- 
bol, Broomball, small groups, secret sisters, prayer 
partners, or the greatest wing hook-ups ever (yeah, 
Jerry and Connie!), we enjoy them all together. Each 
girl has her own interests and groups of friends out- 
side of the wing, but for the rest of our lives, should 
we meet each other again, we'll proudly boast that 
we lived on the same great wing. Third North 
English, in 2003-2004.

Visitors to Third Center English are more likely to 
identify the rooms of friends or family members by 
the names on the doors, not the numbers above them. 
But when the light hits the plaque above each room 
just right, the true identities of the residents within 
are revealed in the faint shadow of a cross that covers 
the digits. It reminds us that we dedicated this year to 
God before any of the freshmen set foot on our wing 
last fall, as we anointed each room with oil and 
prayed earnestly for each girl by name. 

None of us will deny that this year has been 
demanding on all of us, and our relationships have 
been both strengthened and strained. But for me, it 



will always come down to this: from the start, we 
acknowledged before God that this wing was His 
and not ours, we lay down our concerns before 
Him, and we trusted that He would grow us in a 
manner that was appropriate for His purposes. I 
hope that, when you leave U-Town and people ask 
why you spent four years of your life at Taylor 
University, these are the things you will remember. 
And 1 hope you rejoice in the uniqueness of this 
school, this wing, and the unashamed passion we 
have to pursue a life of service for our King.

The last thing in the world a college sophomore wants to do is 
start over. Unfortunately, that's where I found myself in the fall of 
2003. Luckily for me, I ended up on Third South English, and I 
thank God daily for bringing this group of girls into my life. 

After being leaving my old wing, I was skeptical about ever fitting 
in at Taylor. Third South transformed my college experience from 
bleak to loving. 

The women dwelling on Third South constantly encourage one 
another. Through near-tragic car accidents to wedding bells to mis- 
sion trips, the girls of Third South upheld each other in love and 
prayer. Never have I experienced such acceptance, such patience, 
such kindness. 

We always joke about how no one ever visits us at Open House 
unless they're lost. It's funny, though, how well this year's unoffi- 
cial wing slogan fits. Whether you're a boy helplessly navigating 
the labyrinth that is English Hall or an exiled sophomore looking 
for a new home, "the lost shall be foimd on Third South English."

The girls on Second Gerig (a.k.a. 2G) come from many 
backgrounds and enjoy different activities. Some are into 
music, some athletics, some socializing, and some even 
like studying. 

Despite our diversity, we find a common bond in our 
love for the Lord and in our desire to glorify His name, as 
can be fotmd in our floor verse, Eph. 3:20-21. 

Secondly, we find a bond in our love for fun times: trips 
to Ivanhoes, Texas Road House, and Handy Andy; Phase 
III parties (ring down alternative), pillow fights, retreats, 
prayer and testimony times, intense games of speed scrab- 
ble, rejoicing over fish that come back to life and lament- 
ing over those who aren't so lucky, cheering at athletic 
events, supporting musical events, playing feisty intra- 
mural games, baking, knitting/crocheting, strategically 
placing Rochester the roaming rat, memorizing the verge 
of the week, reading Dave Berry columns in the bathroom, 
and adding to the quote board. 

While quite a bit of fun takes place on Second Gerig, 
there are also some serious times. Second Gerig is a place 
where you can be yourself — where it is safe to open up 
and to be vulnerable. Tears are not uncommon, but there 
is always someone to listen and offer help and encourage- 
ment when needed. Second Gerig is a group of fun-loving, 
close-knit girls who care for each other as sisters in Christ.

You probably li\e in Gerig Hall if you know what the words 
"window, trash, big, center, and pseudo" have in common. 

Well, I guess I can let all you non-Gerigians in on it too. They 
are the nicknames of the building's different suites. 

Like our suite names, Third Gerig has an array of ladies with 
different majors and interests ranging from engineering 
physics to music with almost everything in between. We're 
unique, yet we share a common identity as sisters in Christ. 

This identity has been our floor's theme through the year, 
and I have seen the identifying love of Jesus shown through 
encouragement while hanging out in the suites at night, or a 
smile in the morning when I can barely open my eyes. 

There have been many fun events on the floor this year. One 
of my favorites was the fall retreat to a cabin in Michigan 
where Jenny and Rachel gave us rides on a jet ski while we

wore sweatshirts and towels over our swimsuits because it was 
so cold. 

I hope the other girls felt unifying love the way I did when we 
clapped for Kara as she finished a beautiful song containing the 
word "Cookoo" during her junior voice recital, and when the 
basketball game announcer said "Alicia Russell" and soprano 
screams erupted from the far side of the gym. 

Even though our schedules may be chaotic sometimes, and 
our interests vary, we can still feel unity together at chapel, 
around a table in the D.C., at a special event, or just hanging 
out. Third Gerig is a wonderful floor, not only because of our 
uniqueness, but because of the way God can use and unite all of 
us in a special way.

One story can't define dorm life for the guys of 
Fourth Gerig, or FOSO, as it's known, but one word 
can. 

Camaraderie is one of the first things that comes to 
mind when the guys of FOSO think about what sets 
them apart. FOSO is the only guys floor that has 
suites, and this characteristic combined with the small 
size keeps FOSO's 31 guys tightly knit. 

It's impossible to classify the floor because it is a con- 
glomeration of guys from all walks of life studying 
diverse subjects. Once thought to only contain com- 
puter science majors, FOSO is now home to political 
science. Christian education, pre-med, philosophy 
and music majors, just to name a few. For the guys on 
FOSO, dorm life is a holistic experience that combines 
all kinds of events into an enjoyable and memorable 
environment. 



FOSO life is intramural basketball and football, late 
night runs to IHOP, playing cards and Xbox against 
each other, and watching Futurama at night. 

As half of FOSO's 31 guys are upper classmen, this 
year's freshmen have had plenty of sources for guid- 
ance and mentoring. This leadership created a unique 
meeting held every Sunday night where FOSO guys 
gather to share testimonies and talk about pertinent 
spiritual matters. 

On a wall in FOSO, big letters spell out the exhorta- 
tion of Ephesians 4:1-3 ... to live a life worthy of our 
calling. I think that we all can say that we have "borne 
with one another in love," and have made "every effort 
to keep the unity . . . through the bond of peace."

E-I-E-I lEO 

We came here to let you know. . . 

We're rough, we're tough, we're FIRST EAST BEASTS 

You're gonna be our dinner feast! 

1 EO! 



Despite the use of cheesy intramural football cheers- 
which didn't prove too effective anyway — the women 
on First East are definitely fabulous and more than def- 
initely (we're talking 150% here) the most unique blend 
of free-spirits, pranksters, quiet-types, goofballs and 
saints. Though far from perfect — perfect being to 
remember to turn the oven on when baking cookies for 
the brother wing — we have managed to claim victory 
over 2CW in our annual shaving cream fight, comfort 
each other in times of tragedy, survive blind Pick-A- 
Dates set up by Connie Magers, the best wing hook-up 
in the history of Taylor University, and make it through 
another year at Taylor together. 

Whether we are making fools of ourselves singing the 
Happy Birthday song in the D.C., violating "quiet 
hours," or trying to identify the random articles of 
clothing that seem to sneak out of the laundry room. 
First East women are always going to be the coolest. 
And we can fit 16 people around a D.C. table . . . really.

With more freshmen than returning stu- 
dents, it was hard to know what to expect as 
we began the new school year. However, 
despite the changes, this was anything but a 
rebuilding year for First West. Ongoing tradi- 
tions like the Arch of Love, Campin' 
Hootenany, and having Phurst West Wengatz 
as our brother wing for a third year in a row 
brought some consistency. In addition, we 
braved the outdoors at the Michigan Dunes 
for our fall wing retreat, played with fervor in 
every intramural sport, and tore up the 
Airband stage with our Student Body 
President, Tommy Grimm, in our rendition of 
Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." 

Through it all. First Westers grew in love 
toward each other and developed a deeper 
level of understanding of how to fight the 
good fight of faith (ITim. 6:11-12).

f- 'Unity amidst diversity' is an excellent description of 
•Seeond East Olson this year. A great variety of ages, per- 
-sonalities, and majors comprised the 41 women living on 
the wing. From 12 fresh- 
men to two seniors and I 
from elementary educa- 
tion to biology /pre-med 
majors, the women 
brought their own indi- ' 

viduality to the make-up 
of the wing. 

Although many dis- 
tinct groups of friends ; 
were present on Second 



coming together as a |f 
whole during different - . 
wing events, such as the . ' '■ 
pick-a-date to the 
Indians baseball game, 
caroling at the ;'■*« 

University Nursing 
Home, and sharing 
Lighthouse and spring break stories. 

In addition, wing small group Bible studies built rela- 
tionships among the women on Second East. Each week 
the women gathered with their groups of five to six mem- 



bers. During the hour long meeting, the women studied the 
Bible and devotional books together and shared testimonies 
and prayer requests. The women also gained prayer partners 

who committed to praying 
for each other's weekly 
\ needs. The small groups 

* were an exciting dynamic of 

"L^ wing uruty, for they enabled 
" the women to develop new, 

, ?i' spiritually encouraging rela- 

tionships. 
'^ A final unique feature of 

"■-urAUflr Second East Olson was its 

many wing downs; the 
entire wing appeared to 
support the newly engaged 
woman. While wearing a 
7w^' _d^ --r'j makeshift veil of toilet 

J paper, the woman shared 
her engagement story. The 
wing-down ended with a 
time of prayer for the future 
marriage, as well as celebra- 
tion with sparkling cider and cake. These times were special 
because they allowed the engaged woman to experience 
encouragement from her united community of friends.

Second Center Olson 



It all Started at the hog farm. Second Center's tradition of 
unity began the first week of school with a wing retreat to 
Cuthbert's hog farm. 

With the oncoming of I : 

21 new women, a 
campfire, apple 

s'mores, swimming in 
artic water, and good 
ol' camp songs set the 
stage for the child-like 
fun that became 
Second Center's trade- 
mark of the year. The 
foot washing ceremo- | ... 
ny planted the seeds of 
continual servant lead- 
ership throughout '03 
and '04. Wing prayer 
and small groups 
exemplified the vul- 
nerability and honesty 
that the girls shared. 
The amazing freshman 
joined together and set 

a model of spiritual integrity with their goal of memoriz- 
ing the book of James.

tions, and spending time 
with our amazing wing 
hookups, the Lembrights, 
Second Center knew how 
to have fun. 

With an amazing mix of 
freshmen and upperclass- 
men Second Center Olson 
became a place where 
; laughter was contagious, 

smacks were a sign of 
'- i affection, and once again, 
the pot couch was the 
place to be . . . and it all started with the piggies.

Second West Olson 



And they came, dressed in black from head to toe, prepared 
to face another battle in intramural football. The women of 
Second West, traditionally known to succeed in intramural 
football, continued to prove their dominance this year. Their 
undefeated season gave 
Second West the champi- 
onship. Once named intra- 
mural champs for 2004, 
these women had one more 
chance to showcase their 
skills in a game against the 
intramural champs from 
Indiana Wesleyan 

University. 

The game could best be 
summarized by a quote 
from an IWU fan, "This was 
supposed to be a game 
between the intramural 
champions from each cam- 
pus, not the all-stars from 
Taylor vs. our best team 
well. 

While football was a highlight of the year for many women 
on Second West, many other memories will be cherished. The 
wing retreat was a time of encouragement and relational 




Second West represented Taylor 



growth, as each woman heard uplifting comments from her 
wingmates. Second West participated in Airband once again 
this year, with a DC Talk medley. 
Other highlights were the pick-a-dates. For the first pick-a- 

date, the women and their 
dates went out to a farm for 
hayrides, a bonfire, and 
food. Later in the semester, 
the women and their dates 
watched the Pacer's game 
from the nosebleed section. 
The formal was another fun 
night, which included 
Disney on Ice and ice skat- 
ing. Finally, the favorite 
pick-a-date. . . the Cub's!! 
Once again, the men came 
running, and a few lucky 
ones were able to take part 
in a fun weekend. 

While some traditions 
have remained consistent over the years, it is the women 
who make the wing such a great place to live. The women 
this year formed many close friendships that will be trea- 
sured for years to come.

Third East Olson 



Variety was the spice in the lives of the Third East girls 
this year. From 40-foot ice cream sundaes on the Olson 
lawn in September to Mission Impossible: Indy Style in 
February, this year was incredible. 

Forty-one girls sharing one hallway makes for a crazy liv- 
ing environment. Sharing 
one bathroom with all these 
girls makes it even crazier. 

The annual wing retreat 
was a bonding time for the 
wing. Early in the first 
semester, many of the girls 
traveled to Indy for cookie 
baking, scary movies and 
wing prayer. This weekend 
developed friendships that 
will last a lifetime. 

The wing's first annual cookie open house became a 
favorite among many of the men on campus. The hall was 
filled with every variety of cookie you could imagine, even 
cookie dough. 




Over spring break, many of the girls traveled to Georgia 

with guys from Second West Wengatz, the brother wing. 

The team spent the week working on houses for Habitat 

for Humanity. 

Along with the fun, however, God did His work in the 

girls on the wing. From 
prayer and praise to small 
groups. He was ever-pre- 
sent. These girls were a 
major source of encourage- 
ment for one another, con- 
stantly living to serve one 
another in Christ's love. 

This was a year that will 

never be forgotten for the 

41 girls of Third East. 

"Some people come into 

our lives and quickly go — others stay for a while, leaving 

footprints on our hearts and we are never the same"

The word to describe Third Center this year is variety. 
We are a small wing compiled of a di\'erse mix of women. 

"People are in different stages in life with different life 
directions, personalities 
and passions," said 
freshman Laura Levon. 
In spite of the variety, 
there is imderlying 
unity as well. 

Three weeks into 
school our wing united 
after freshman Angle 
Boline's tragic injury. 
During a routine timi- 
bling practice Angle fell 
and broke her lower 
back, paralyzing her 
from the waist down. 
After learning of the 
injury, everyone who 
was on the wing came 
together in the Third 

Center hallway and prayed. Someone suggested we 
make a care package for Angle, and that night over half 
of the wing sat there listening to Shane and Shane, look- 
ing up verses of encouragement. 




"We were all grie\'ing together," said junior, Hannah 
Foster. The next morning a group of girls packed into three 
or four cars and drove to the hospital in Chicago where 

Boline was staying to 
show support. 

The random road trip 
demonstrated our love for 
Angle and allowed for 
some great bonding time 
as well. 

"We went through scrip- 
ture, prayed together, and 
talked a ton," said Laura. 

Unity continued 
throughout the year as 
our wing met for prayer 
and praise e\'ery 

Thursday night, study 
break e\'ery Tuesday 
night, two weekend 
retreats, and a variety of 
pick a dates. 
"This is home," said junior Katie Macukas. "I wouldn't 
want to live anywhere else."

Third West Olson 




What a year it has been! We started off the year with several 
trips to the emergency room for various reasons including 
intramural football. 3WO opened the year with a bonding 
wing retreat. We spent some time shopping, sharing, and 
swimming. We also took some time to pray for the year and 
each of the small group leaders washed their groups' feet. We 
enjoyed our first pick-a-date, the hoe-down, a tradition on 
Third West for a long time. 3WO also came out as champions 
for intramural soccer!!! 

Second semester came quickly and we began the semester 
with a fun night at the circus. Another aspect of living on 3WO 
was our weekly Bible study groups. Everyone involved in a 
Bible study met in the hallway for a brief time. We then broke 
up in our small groups for encouragement and to challenge 
one another in our walks with Christ. The Lord began a good 
work on 3WO that I look forward to see continued next year.

Foundation 



What can I say about Foundation? It's the quiet 
floor of Samuel Morris Hall. I'm sure foundation 
residents are the only Sammy dwellers who, 
when asked where 




they live, hear this 
response to their 
answer, "That's in 
Sammy, right?" But 
that's okay, because 
we're the most laid 
back of all the floors. 

Now, some guys in 
other regions of 
Samuel Moris think 
Foundation is some- 
how not a part of 
Sammy because we 
don't have some kind 
of tradition (i.e. dress 
like cows, women, or 
Athenians). Well, they'd be incorrect, because we 
have the shovel. It's a nice shovel to boot. The cur- 
rent tradition of the shovel goes something like 
this . . . we have a shovel somewhere on the floor 
. . . maybe. There always seems to be one guy who 



claims to have it, but I don't think he knows 
where it is either. But whenever the shovel, or its 
clone, does show up, those evil girls on Second 

Center Olson always 

f steal it. Now this next 

part is key. Don't for- 
— get it. We do hardly 

anything to get it back 
until the last few 
weeks of school. And 
even then it amounts 
to little more than a 
raid of Second Center 
Olson for show while 
one personal assistant 
secretly begs for the 
shovel back. 

There you go. That's 

our tradition. It may 

not sound like much 

to anybody else, but that's okay, because we're 

laid back. Give us a deck of cards, a few good 

friends, and we're happy.

Sammy II is the paradox of the Taylor commu- 
nity. It's a floor of computer gamers who also find 
ways to be multi-sport intramural champions. It's 
a floor of dangerously good looking men that find 
a way to not be all about chasing silly girls. Most 
of all, it's by far the greatest place on campus . . . 
and it sucks . . . constantly. 

Men that live here have a different understand- 
ing of Taylor community — you don't need 
"wings" to be fly. Life on Sammy II is a life full of 
brotherly love, friendships that will last a lifetime, 
and acceptance for everyone. This accepting atti- 
tude is powerful. 



Everyone is encouraged to make friends on the 
floor who will guide them through the good and 
bad times before they go out into the real world 
and get their hearts ripped out and stomped on 
by the cruel, cruel world. Sammy II men are men 
who find ways to enjoy themselves by having 
events such as naked Slip n' Slide, pool/shower 
party, Sammy II Smackdown, and Video Game 
Armageddon. Long Live the Moo! Slay the 
Wicked!

The Brotherhood 



The 2003-2004 school year was unique for members of the third 
floor of Samuel Morris Hall, commonly referred to in infamy as 
the Brotherhood. These good-hearted 
young men band together loyally in a 
way that send young, innocent Taylor 
girls running in fear. In the fall, veter- 
ans of the floor, long-standing seniors, 
received the honor of electing a new 
floor leader, the third and most 
dynamic component to campus' 
arguably most powerful triumvirate. 
The Snake and the Pope waited anx- 
iously for the seniors to observe the 
freshmen and reveal their assessment of who would be selected 
as the Phubbbbbbs at the annual court procession. Details of the 
court, the triumvirate and their inner-workings are shrouded in 



mystery. Secrets are very sensitively protected by floor mem- 
bers. Upon thorough inspection of each of the freshmen's 

unique attributes, it was decided 
that Tim VanReenan would no 
longer be known as Tim 
VanReenan but as Phubbbbbbs. 
The decision was celebrated by a 
ceremonial skip around the loop 
and Taco Bell feast. 

2003 marked a new era on the 
Brotherhood. These courageous 
brothers no longer had to wander 
aimlessly through their college 
careers. They now had a venerable leader to guide them in their 
search for excitement and adventure.

Penthouse 




It was 6:30 a.m. and I was finishing up my seventh roll of 
duct tape. I put a few final touches on a tiki-hut before tak- 
ing a break for breakfast with 20 other guys who had also 
stayed up all night. The day was December 20th and the 
event was Penthouse Christmas Open House — undoubted- 
ly one of my best experiences at Taylor. 

Weeks of planning had led up to three days of absolute 
pandemonium on the floor. Lack of sleep, thousands of 
Christmas lights, tons of pizza, and oodles of cardboard 
highlighted our time spent together. Although pulling off 
the most amazing open house on campus forced me to 



reluctantly skip a few classes and neglect sleep, the benefits 
far outweighed the costs. 

This year's theme was "Hawaiian Holidays" and I feel like 
we put on a mighty luau indeed. With a flowing volcano 
and a working waterfall, it was something in which we 
could all take pride. We scrambled to reach the 7:00 p.m. 
deadline, which was when the Penthouse became open to 
the world. Dramatic last second changes made the experi- 
ence all the more exciting as our floor transformed from 
bleak, barren hallways to a vibrant, Hawaiian paradise. 

"If you build it, they will come." This proved to be the 
case as hundreds of visitors crammed the hallways, chuck- 
ling and pointing at some of the finest construction that no 
money can buy. The crowds eventually ceased and the duct 
tape grew tired and the surprisingly fun cleanup project 
began. What had ensued that night was a result of an 
immense amoimt of work and an enormous amount of fun. 
Naive patrons questioned if it was worth it. I guess they'll 
have to find out next year when Christmas time rolls 
around and the Penthouse pulls something greater, if that's 
even possible.

Swallow Robin Men 



It's unsurprising that a relatively tiny and distant 
dorm would form such a closely-knit community 
within itself; however, this is exactly what has 
occurred in Swallow Robin. To some extent this is 
reflected in the relationships that form within each 
of the three floors in Swallow, and on Second 
Swallow in particular. Since Swallow only has one 
men's floor, the turmoil of decision making for 
places to hang out is immensely decreased; hence 
community is unavoidable. 

As such, SRII is a microcosm of a microcosm. And, 
amusingly enough, it works pretty well. We form 
our own sub communities on the floor according to 
interest and friendship. Since we spend a lot of time 
together, we each tend to develop a comfort zone 
with each other. In short, SRII is a place where 
everyone, introvert or extrovert, can work out a 
comfortable balance between socialization and soli- 
tude; we have a remote family community, but to us, 
it's the community of willing fellowship.

The first floor of Swallow had a year of many changes but major 
growth. We welcomed nine freshmen on the floor in the fall. With 
only 23 girls total, these freshmen made quite an impact. 
Thankfully we soon had a chance to get to know these new girls 
during our floor retreat. We had nearly perfect attendance for the 
weekend, and we experienced wonderful times of playing games, 
setting up tents, talking and praying, cooking s'mores over the 
campfire, and worshipping God together under the starry sky. We 
began to build relationships. 

As the year progressed, these friendships grew deeper. In 
February, we had another floor event, a game night at our per- 
sonal assitant's sister's house. There we played the couch game, 
freshmen against upperclassmen. The freshmen won, and part of 



the reason for their victory was the upperclassmen couldn't 
remember which of us were the freshmen! We had become such 
good friends with these girls that we no longer thought of them 
as freshmen. They brought new life to the floor and helped us 
start new traditions. 

I'll never forget the huge, random quote board to which we 
were constantly adding, the booty-smack contests after floor 
prayer, the multi-lingual phone conversations in the hallway, 
the bathroom library of endless books, magazines, and games, 
the open doors, and the open hearts. Dear friendships were 
formed.

Though the third floor of Swallow Robin may be the smallest 
floor on Taylor's campus with an astounding 19 girls, we certain- 
ly are not lacking in diversity. So what do you get when girls from 
Canada, Kenya, Bolivia, Argentina, Taiwan, Korea, Hong Kong, 
and various parts of the United States live together on one floor 
and share one bathroom? You get an atmosphere of cultural 
awareness, sensitivity, encouragement, and fun. 

Despite busy schedules and differences among the girls, we've 
managed to nurture this atmosphere in a variety of ways. From 
being lost in the cornfields of Indiana on our first pick-a-date, to 
the late night bathroom chats in various languages — don't count 



on being able to understand the phone calls you may overhear 
echoing down the hall, this floor is a gallery exhibiting the 
beauty found in our differences. Along with varying cultural 
backgrounds, our floor hosts ladies with a variety of talents. 
There are artists, musicians, writers, and athletes. These differ- 
ences are a daily reminder of our creator's artistry. Each one of 
us truly is fearfully and wonderfully made. Diversity makes 
SRlll a wonderful place to live, learn, and grow.

Fjjrst.East..Wen^atz 




First East Wengatz . . . it's a place where anything can 
happen. As a senior living in the room Lori Holtman 
and Skip Trudeau chose for me four years ago, I feel as 
though I can speak with some perspective on a place 
called First East that has come full-circle. When I was a 
freshman, there were 15 other first years living on the 
wing, causing anxiety among upperclassmen who saw 
some of their long held traditions in jeopardy. But we 
adapted to our new surroundings in a way that respect- 
ed the wing's past, but was in our own way unique. 

This past year, there was a similarly large influx of 
new blood, sending the same waves of anxiety over 
myself and other seniors. However, the young First 
Easters have likewise adapted, while at the same time 
making the wing their own. The First East of the past 
upon which I look so fondly is gone forever, and soon I 
will be too. But the spirit of brotherhood lives on in First 
East and inhabits everything we do. 

From winning Airband (incidentally, our proudest 
and oldest tradition. First East won Airband in '97 and 
'98, took third place in '99 and again in '02, and was a 
featured act in 2000) to the community showers, I've 
come to cherish so much. As long as this spirit lives on, 
first east will be the kind of place that welcomes 
mommy /daddies, com-ponents, Keller, and of course, 
Seabiscuit.

Few things are certain in life, but one thing is for 
sure: Phurst West Wengatz will always be the best 
wing on campus. This year proved no exception to 
the rule as we rocked out with rad events, late night 
pranks, and sweet girls. 

The first annual sit-a-thon was a blast as more 
than 20 guys (and a few sister wingers) sat cross- 
legged on the sidewalk in an all out test of 
endurance and self-control. The event lasted for 
almost five hours and the winner received a sweet 
80's style Larry Bird jacket, while the money raised 
was given to the Wengatz Hall sponsored 
Compassion International child. 

The PDUB luaus in the fall and spring were other 
fan favorites as we partied in front of Wengatz. We 
cooked some burgers, played some catch, and 
turned off our music and stared awkwardly at any 
girls that walked by. Wow, what a day. 

Other highlights included wing retreats, calling 
girls at 2 a.m. to ask them to play Dungeons & 
Dragons, the whole wing performing an Outkast 
song in the Battle of the Bands, regular late night 
IHOP runs, and having a rockin' intramural soccer 
team (only team to not make the playoffs, except for 
the team that forfeited every game). 

Phurst West cannot be summed up in such a small 
amount of space, but the truth is the wing was a 
community that had a lot of fun, and experienced a 
lot of growth together. All of us are leaving this 
wing better men than when we came.

Second East Wengatz, or second easy, as some 
would put it. Lots of guys with lots of quirks. . .to say 
the least. 

So, who does Second East consist of? 
Guys from 11 different states and three different 
countries 

The biggest Cubs, White Sox, Yankees, Red Sox, 
Reds, Panthers, Duke, UNC and Purdue fans on 
campus 

Six seniors who spent their four years at Taylor with 
in the confines of 2E 
Ten guys from Chicagoland 
Guys with roots ranging from Amish to Jewish 

As you can see. Second East is no ordinary wing. 
Two events describe pretty well second east as a 
whole. 

1. No Shave November. 

Fifteen guys going one month without touching 
their faces with a razor blade. Sick? Or awesome? 
With awards ranging from the "Only Real Beard" to 
the "Wait . . . it's No-Shave November?" award, it 
was definitely another successful year of this trea- 
sured Second East tradition. 

2. It's a beautiful fall evening in central Indiana. 

After a day at Turkey Run State Park with the sis- 
ter wing, the Second East boys spend the night at 
some adjacent property. One big campfire and 20 siz- 
zling hobo dinners later, guys were full and ready for 
sleep under the stars. Then when 12 guys nestled 
close together in one tent, I couldn't help but smile, 
despite the stench and sweat. Only on Second East.

Second Q^iili^iry^ 




Another year on Second Center has brought 
many new faces. A great group of freshmen 
entered the wing excited about fellowshipping 
and learning. Our few returning sophomores 
jumped right back into Taylor life and never 
looked back. The juniors of our wing all found 
significant others and were hopelessly lost. Our 
two seniors were busy with football and soccer, 
but we were excited to see them join us for sev- 
eral wing events despite their busy schedules. 

The year has flown by, but we must remember 
some of the highlights of our year on 2C. The 
beginning of the year shaving cream battle was a 
big hit with our new sister wing lEO. Who can 
forget the annual Disco Bowling Pick-a-Date? 
Some of us were involved in Airband, while oth- 
ers just enjoyed it. 

We've had sign wars and photo-editing duels. 
And who could forget the annual 2C Random 
Road Trip. . .well, actually that never happened. 
Fortunately we were able to make great relation- 
ships and have a ton of fun regardless. 

Overall it's been a great year and as many of us 
leave this wing at the end of the year, we all 
know that we have shared in a great year and 
will not forget it anytime soon.

Second West..W^ 



Second west, though an innocuous wing, still maintains that it's 
the favorite wing in Wengatz Hall. After all, isn't the creamy cen- 
ter of the Oreo everyone's favorite? Nestled between the other 
west wings, its occupants comfortably enjoy the anonymity from 
the women on campus. We have our own fun, though. The four 
horsemen of the apocalypse taught the freshman early on who's 
in charge; sparkling grape juice flowed in the three-man as two 
dubs partook in an all-male techno rave complete with black 
lights, fog machine and strobe light; we feasted during our annu- 
al "bratfest" and even prcimoted fashion savvy with a B-grade, all 
clothed fashion shoot. 

Despite numerous attempts, we were unable to reach the allu- 
sive cherry Pepsi in our drink challenges, but we did manage to 



wreck our intestines. Stranger things have happened. Oddly 
enough, the Phubbs was discovered in our lounge early one 
morning. Strange times indeed. 

Our open houses were a favorite with all the ladies (that is with 
the small contingents who graced us) and gents — including our 
first ever Techno Thanksgiving Open House. Talk about a rave. 
Our other special open house — the Christmas one — was another 
success thanks to the ladies of English, Olson and Gerig who sup- 
plied us with bounties of lights and previously used decorations. 
"Tonight We Ride" was a guaranteed success story, which I won't 
waste time describing, and we won back our sister wing. Life can 
be sweet.

When I look back at this year to see what specifically 
"Taylor Made" means for Third East, I am proud and excit- 
ed. The residence life is one of many reasons why students 
choose to come to Taylor. Many unique characteristics dis- 
tinguish the wings and dorms. So what has made Third 
East so special in my eyes and the eyes of the men that live 
on it? One of the reasons is what happens in one year 
between the guys on the wing. 

So many exciting things happened this year and whether 
it was the community between the men through small 
groups or wing retreats, or the success of the wing in intra- 
murals. For those who come to Taylor unsure of the road 
ahead, the growth through small groups has been reward- 
ing. Some guys have studied what it means to be "Abba's 



Child" in the terms of what Scripture has to say, while oth- 
ers have taken the Word to find personal challenges. The 
spiritual growth has been encouraging. 

The wing has also seen success in intramurals. With a trip 
to the semifinals in football, and the finals in soccer and 
basketball, these men have shown their skill. But perhaps 
more encouraging than the success of the intramural teams 
is the encouragement received from those guys on the wing 
that are on the sidelines. The men of Third East have grown 
close through encouragement and brotherly kindness and 
that is perhaps what makes Third East special.

Third Center. We^^ 



Culture can be defined as behaviors, patterns, beliefs and 
other products that are passed on from one generation to the 
next. In the center wing on the third floor of Wengatz Hall 
live 30 men that have a culture all their own. 

Third Center isn't known for a specific stereotype like being 
athletic, academic, or 
acting outrageous, rather 
they are known for their 
diversity. They tend to 
go against the norm like 
a rebellious midcile 
child; creating their own 
identity. 

Each year Third Center 
carries out the tradition 
of being a tight knit 
group of guys. We form 
friendships that last for 
life. Whether it is our 
time on the intramural 
field or our time of 
prayer and praise each 
Sunday night, our cama- 
raderie shines through. 

Although some filter in and out of the wing through the 
years they know that once a Third Centerer always a Third 
Centerer. 

The funny thing though is that each year Third Center 
seems to always have this same sense of togetherness. 
Where does it come from? The answer begins and ends with 
one focus, a Christ centered environment. 

Every year, the night before classes begin in early 
September the upperclassman wash the feet of every new 
freshman or transfer student that lives on Third Center. The 
new students are under the influence that they are going to 




be tormented by the others, but soon it becomes an after- 
thought. 

After being blindfolded and spun around until dizzy, the 
students are led one by one on a walk in complete darkness 
towards the prayer deck. Once there, the upperclassmen 

kneel down on their 
hands and knees and 
begin washing the stu- 
dent's feet; mirroring the 
humility Christ showed 
towards His disciples in 
John 13. 

Then each student is 
prayed for individually. 
This process continues 
for about 45 minutes. 
When the feet of each 
student have been 
washed they're unblind- 
folded and these 30 men 
conclude in a time of 
prayer and praise. 

We are a group of guys 
who love one another. 
You may hear nicknames shouted around campus like 
"Diesel," "B-Stat," "Mabes," "Bucket," or "Hendo." These are 
just a few of the guys that are a part of the family. As it says 
on the back of the Wengatz Hall shirt, "We're the good stuff 
in the middle." 

Third center continues to be a culture all its own, passing 
down behaviors, patterns, and beliefs year after year. Our 
mission is found in I Corinthians 12:12, "The body is a unit, 
though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts 
are many, they form one body."

ThJrd.West.W 




And it was in those days, in 
the time of Spenn. that many 
wings and floors became 
shallow, empty shells of their 
former selves. Yet there was 
one wing that still stood tall, 
one wing that did not fade 
away into the night. For this 
wing was mighty in deed and 
great in character. Steeped in 
that holy tradition passed 
down by those who walked 
the halls long ago, they con- 
tinued onward and upwards, 
forging their own stories that 
would one day become leg- 
end and myth. And so it was 
that Third West was the 
mightiest of wings, towering 
o\er all the others. In nomine 
patre, et fili, et spiritus sancti.

FOOTBALL 



Taylor endured a tough season in 2003, 
but fortunately there were rays of hope. 
The team ended with a 2-8 record but 
managed big wins over both Iowa 
Wesleyan and Malone in the fourth and 
final games of the season. 

"We had a tough year, and things didn't 
always come together for us," said senior 
tight end Jeremy Russel. "But we have a lot 
of young guys on this team that really grew 
throughout the season. Next year could be 
a totally different story." 

The season started with a 21-27 loss at 
home to Trinity International, and a 22-27 
home loss to rival Anderson the next 
Saturday. The week after the Trojans trav- 
eled to McKendree, the NAIA's 2nd ranked 
team, and took home a 0-34 loss. 

Taylor turned things around in time for 
week four of the season, when they hosted 
Iowa Wesleyan and managed a 34-14 win. 
With close to 60 rushing yards each, run- 
ning backs Tad Litwiller and Brandon 
Gardner led a rushing attack that gained 
195 yards in the game. The defense con- 
tributed 17 tackles for loss of yardage in the 
game. 

Taylor relapsed after that game, and 
racked up tough losses to Quincy, Urbana, 
Walsh, St. Francis, and Geneva in the fol- 
lowing weeks. Both Walsh and St. Francis 
were highly ranked teams. 
The season ended on a high note as Taylor 
won a defensive battle at Malone 13-9. The 
offense was led by Bryan Jackson's four 
receptions and a touchdown, but the 
defense made the difference in the game. 
Adam Foote's 15 tackles and Josh Staley's 
11, including 3 sacks, led the team. 
Five players were named to the All-MSFA 
team. Defensive end Staley was named to 
the first team; defensive tackle Ryan Ott 
and receiver Cory Neuenschwander were 
named to the second team; and quarter- 
back Jeff Walton and cornerback Wes 
Nicely received honorable mention. 

"We're going to take it one game at a time 
next year," said junior linebacker Jeremiah 
Ramer. "We're going to come out swinging, 
and we'll see what happens."

The winning tradition continued for Taylor's 
2003 volleyball team as they finished with a 34- 
11 overall, and a 7-1 conference record. 

The Lady Trojans made several adjustments 
this season as they learned to play without two- 
time NAIA All- American Kim Martin. 

The 2003 club found leadership and guidance 
in seniors Taryn Eitmontas and Jen Hale. Hale 
dished out 1,942 assists this season, earning her 
a spot on the first team, NAIA All-Region Team. 
She was also named Player of the Week three 
times this past season. 

In late August, the Lady Trojans opened their 
season with a win against Rio Grande of Ohio at 
the UM Dearborn Tournament. Taylor continued 
to face tough competition early on as they bat- 
tled 13th ranked Doane and 14th ranked Lee 
University. They also played Olivet Nazarene 
immediately into their season. 

Taylor defeated 12th ranked Walsh over 
Homecoming weekend in October. The Lady 
Trojans at the time were ranked 25th in the 
NAIA poll. A week and a half later Taylor had 
climbed to 23rd in the rankings as they partici- 
pated in the 2003 Sprint Fall Break Tournament. 

The Lady Trojans battled MidAmerican 
Nazarene University for a win in the opening 
round of the tournament. They then defeated 
King College and advanced to the championship 
game, where they faced Olivet Nazarene for a 
second time. The Trojans lost the first two games 
of the match, but thev didn't give up. They 
dominated the next three games for the win and 
first place title. 

Following the Sprint Fall Break Tournament, 
the Lady Trojans took on Bethel College in con- 
ference play. The teams had been tied for seconci 
place going into the match. Taylor won in four 
games and claimed sole possession of second 
place in the MCC. 

Taylor's season continued to improve. The 
19th ranked Lady Trojans took part in the 
Huntington College Tournament. There they 
faced Goshen College, UM-Dearborn, Marian, 
and Aquinas. Competition was no match for 
Taylor who defeated all four teams, winning the 
Tournament. 

In the opening round of the Mid-Central 
Conference playoffs, Taylor easily defeated 
Huntington College in three games. The Lady 
Trojans faced Indiana Wesleyan in the second 
round of the tournament. In a surprising defeat 
for the Lady Trojans, the season was ended in 
four games against the Wildcats.

MEN'S 

SOCCER 



"The scoreboard didn't reveal our qual- 
ity as a team, but it never reveals the 
quality of the man within it," said Coach 
Lund. "While the season record was dis- 
appointing, the effort and growth bv 
individuals and the group provided sat- 
isfactions that the scorekeeper never 
sees." 

The Trojan's 3-13-3 record suggests that 
the season was not quite up to par, yet 
the team had to overcome several obsta- 
cles in a season where the final record 
did not reflect the effort put in. Five of 
the Trojan losses were by one goal, 
including one in double overtime to 
Trinity. They were also undermanned 
with 14 active players, due in part to the 
absence of 2002 freshman standout Jake 
Edgerton, who missed the season 
because of a shoulder injury. 

The Trojans played well as a team, and 
it showed in their scoring attack, as 
more than nine players scored at least 
one goal. Freshman Paul Holliday was 
immediately put into the spotlight as the 
starting goalie for every game. 

"The team was definitely better this 
year despite our record," said sopho- 
more Jeff Brooke. "We competed in 
more games and had several close losses 
as well as wins." It was also Coach Joe 
Lund's last season working with the 
program. Lund stepped down on 
November 1 after 19 seasons as the 
Trojans' head coach. 

"It was tough to see Coach go," said 
Brooke, "He always talked about how 
you learn more through losing and how 
character is developed through that. 
I've had a lot of coaches, and he is one of 
the best leaders I've been around." 

The Trojans will have a new look next 
year with the loss of Coach Lund and 
seniors Caleb Eernisse, James Hornaday 
and Drew Rundus.

WOMEN'S 



SOCCER 



The women's soccer team accomplished 
many things this year, on and off the field. 
With the team built on Jesus Christ, they were 
able to play, win or lose, while giving all the 
glory to Him. This year's team was coached 
again by Ed Meadors. 

Though they had a rocky start, the team hit 
the pinnacle of their season on September 20th 
against Hanover defeating them 6-0. 

This Trojan's triumph turned their season 
around, finishing 7-2-2 in the last 11 regular 
season games. They were able to make the 
first round of the annual Mid-Central College 
Conference tournament where they eventually 
beat the No. 4 seeded Grace 1-0. 

Taylor went into the second round with high 
spirits, as the Lady Trojans took on the No. 1 
seeded Indiana Wesleyan Wildcats. 
Unfortunately, their high spirits were shat- 
tered when Indiana Wesleyan came away with 
the victory. 

With an overall record of 9-7-2, the women's 
soccer team has a hard fought season behind 
them, but their eyes are on next year and 
improving all facets of their game.

MEN'S 

CROSS COUNTRY 



A season that was intended for rebuilding exceed- 
ed expectations and has the members of the men's 
cross country team thinking big for seasons to come. 

The Jarhead's first event was the Indiana Mini 
State meet held at Terre Haute. The team ran well 
and finished in sixth place. The Trojans then ran at 
the Greater Louisville Classic held at Sawyer Park in 
Louisville. Out of the 32-team field, sophomore 
Lance Vanderberg was the pace setter for Taylor, 
coming away with a 15th place finish out of 324 
runners. Fellow sophomore Josh Edgertcin crossed 
the line 41 places behind Vanderberg in 56th place. 

Michael Short was the third jarhead to cross the 
finish line, finishing in 125th place. Kyle Mangum 
was the 145th place finisher. The final two Jarheads 
to finish were Andrew Burgess and Andrew Brooks, 
taking 166th and 182nd place respectively. 

At the Anderson University Invitational on 
October 11, the Trojans finished third despite having 
three runners out with injuries. 

Edgerton topped the Trojans' effort with a third 
place finish, crossing the line at 27:22:22. Short was 
the second Jarhead to finish at a time of 29:10 
putting him in 10th place. 

Magnum finished with a time of 29:53. Brooks fin- 
ished 16th with a time of 31:22, and Burgess took 
18th with 31:56. 

The Jarhead's next event was the Mid Central 
Conference Race in Goshen. The Trojans placed 5th, 
having only five healthy runners finish, Edgerton 
again paced the Trojans, finishing in 11th place at 
27:29, a time good enough to earn MCC honors. 
Short was again Taylor's second best runner finish- 
ing 30 seconds behind Edgerton in 20th place. 
Rounding out the Jarhead effort was Mangum at 
28:24, Burgess at 29:12 and Brooks at 30:16. 

Injury plagued the Jarheads throughout the entire 
season. "It was a good season despite having a small 
team and dealing with a lot of injuries," said 
Burgess. 

Taylor finished 8th at the NAIA VIII Championship 
at Aquinas College, in Grand Rapids, and 8th at the 
NCCAA Championships at John Bryan Park in 
Cedarville, Ohio. 

Expectations will be much higher next year. "If 
they can stay healthy they should be able to qualify 
for the NAIA Nationals. That is how much talent 
they have coming L^ack," said graduating senior 
Burgess.

As the 2003 women's cross country team began 
the season, the potential was yet to be revealed. 
There were only four returning runners: seniors 
Katie Spencer and Jennifer Kamps, junior 
Christy Conrad, and sophomore Carolyn 
Betteridge. The rest of the team was made up of 
one sophomore, Kari Olson, and five freshmen: 
Rachael Cusack, Cassie Hedges, Lauren Shea, 
Autumn Wingers, and Lolly York. After a week 
of camp's grueling practices, the Mad Dawgs 
showed talent and enthusiasm that grew 
throughout the season. 

Cindy Callison coached the team, and captains 
Katie Spencer and Christv Conrad consistently 
practiced their leadership roles by encouraging 
the underclassmen. They decided before the sea- 
son began that this vear was not onlv going to be 
about competitive running, but also about 
friendships and memorable events. The season's 
numerous actix'ities included a practice pick-a- 
date, a pumpkin-carving run, meals at coach's 
house, and overnight meets. 

As the season progressed, the team began to 
work together. The Mad Dawgs took second 
place at two meets, barely missing first. By late 
October they were ranked 25th nationally. 
Throughout the season Betteridge, Wingers, and 
Shea were injured. Each fought through the 
injuries, finishing with an aggressive season at 
regionals. 

"We had a great season for so many different 
reasons. I belie\'e one reason is the way we grew 
to be so close," said Spencer. "We depended on 
each other, and the encouragement from each 
other got us through long, hard practices and 
tough races." 

Through all the miles, injuries, and the infa- 
mous dunes workout, the team's spirits 
remained high as they became another unique 
group of runners in Trojan history.

MEN'S 



TENNIS 



Five freshman, two sophomores 
and one senior. Don Taylor 
entered the 2003 season with the 
youngest team in his nine year 
tenure with the men's tennis pro- 
gram. 

This year the team members 
knew they would endure some 
struggles along their journey. 
They had a tough season. They 
finished 6th in the Mid-Central 
Conference with a record of 3-8 
overall and 2-4 within conference 
play. The numbers, however, do 
not tell the story. 

Tlie cliche "rebuilding year" is 
often overused, but that is what 
this year was for the men's team. 
They had to learn what worked on 
the corners to visualize the full pic- 
ture. Not until Sept. 11, the team's 
fourth match against the Anderson 
Ravens, did Taylor clinch its first 
victory. 

During this match team mem- 
bers began showing glimpses of 
what was to come. Sophoniores 
Jon Teune and Scott Schmeissing 
created a dynamic one-two punch 
as doubles partners as did fresh- 
men Andrew Smiley and Ryan 
Spencer. 

Taylor suffered three more con- 
secutive losses, but bounced back 
strong with two back-to-back vic- 
tories against Huntington and 
Marian College. 

After a tough season, Taylor 
entered the year-end MCC tourna- 
ment with a chance to salvage the 
season. Coach Don Taylor stated 
in his outlook for the year that he 
hoped the team would begin to hit 
their stride toward the end of the 
season entering the year-end 
finale. If they accomplished this 
goal and placed in one of the top 
three spots in the tournament, they 
would then advance onto regional 
play. 



The team walked into the 
Indianapolis Tennis Center 
ready to succeed. Schemissing and 
Teune set the tone by winning their 
first round singles matches before 
winning their doubles match 
together. Stephan Leman also 
defeated both the No. 2 and No. 3 
seeds in his bracket to move on to 
the finals at no. 5 singles. 
However, the team came up short 
with a 5th place finish, despite a 
great showing. 

The team's focus now turns to 
next season. Taylor will have the 
whole roster returning with excep- 
tion of John McNary. Experience 
will be on their side and optimism 
is in the air as the men's tennis 
team competes for the MCC cham- 
pionship next year.

The Tavlor women's tennis team enjoyed 
another successful regular season, finishing 
with a final overall record of 7-3. With confer- 
ence wins o\'er Marian, Huntington, Bethel, St. 
Francis, and Grace, the ladies qualified for the 
NAIA Regional in May after placing second in 
the MCC conference. 

As in years past, the Lady Trojans have been 
a very close-knit team, focusing not only on 
athletics but also on each other's spiritual 
li\'es. This unity is developed as soon as the 
girls arrive at Taylor in the fall. 

"We always start the first week of camp with 
devotions," said junior Jennifer Hoyt. "This 
helps us get to know each other better and to 
begin building those close relationships, not 
only with each other, but with God as well." 

Along with their spiritual goals, the girls pur- 
sued strong physical goals set by Coach Dara 
Syswerda. 

"I wanted each of my players to mature men- 
tally and grow in her ability to handle the 
pressure of this level of competition, as well as 
to grow together in team unity," Syswerda 
said. 

With the team having only three upperclass- 
men, relying on the other three sophomores 
was key. "I'm used to having just a few upper- 
classmen so that seemed normal. I try to take a 
positi\'e encouraging approach and work hard 
at building their confidence as players and as 
women," Syswerda said. "My upperclassmen 
have been good at leading by example in 
every aspect of their lives. I depend on them 
to help encourage the team to strive to 
improve, even when thev feel that they're giv- 
ing everything they have." 

Even though the team does not give out indi- 
vidual awards, this year's tandem to be reck- 
oned with was junior Holly May, who had the 
best singles and doubles record, and sopho- 
more Katie Clark. Not only did these two beat 
Indiana Wesleyan's ranked players twice in 
exciting matches, they also helped to secure a 
spot in the May regional for the Lady Trojans. 

Also playing big roles in the Trojans' success 
were twins Leslie and Lindsey Davis who 
stepped up their games to help Taylor become 
one of the elite in the MCC.

Senior guard Matt Traylor runs past a Grace defender during the Trojans 72-48 victory February 21st- 



After chapel ended on March 10, 2004, 
the NAIA National Tournament game 
between our Taylor Trojans and the 
Daemen Wildcats was broadcast to anx- 
ious Taylor fans. 

With under three minutes to go, the 
Trojans converted a three-point play 
which brought the score to a narrow 70- 
67. Inside the chapel, the excitement was 
building and shouts of encouragement 
could be heard from the fans listening in 
anticipation. Unfortunately, Daemon 
did not allow any more points and the 
game ended in a 74-67 loss for the 
Trojans. 

As students left the chapel after the 
game was over, the mood was not one of 
disappointment. Of course it would 
have been preferred to go on in the tour- 
nament, however no one could be dis- 
appointed in the season the Trojans had 
just completed. 

With a 26-8 record, the Trojans racked 
up three 25-win seasons in a row, the 



13th one under the direction of head 
coach Paul Paterson. The team also was 
once again crowned Mid-Central 
Conference Champions with a 71-60 vic- 
tory over St. Francis, the third season in 
a row that the Trojans have claimed the 
title. Also, the Trojans defense was 
ranked No. 1 in the nation for points 
allowed and No. 3 in the nation for field- 
goal percentage defense. 

Although the Trojans will be losing the 
leadership of seniors Ben Brown, Matt 
Lettinga, John Miles, and Matt Traylor, 
the team will be returning plenty of 
experience to the court next year. 
Among those returning are sophomores 
Eric Ford and Doug Bell. Ford, a 6' 
guard, received Division II All-America 
Third Team honors, and Bell, a 6' 7" cen- 
ter, was a Division II All-America 
Honorable Mention. 

Also returning with a strong men's bas- 
ketball team will be the incredible fans 
that cheer on the Trojans. Everyone in

the stands and the men of Morris and 
Wengatz are ready to open the next sea- 
son and cheer like mad for the team. 

Because of the incredible team that will 
be returning to the cciurt and the incred- 
ible body of fans who will be there to 
cheer them to victory, there is much 
anticipation for the next season. So 
although the Trojans left the tournament 
early, there is much to look forward to, 
and everyone knows that the Trojans 
will visit Missouri again.

This vear was unlike any year for tlie 
Taylor Women's Basketball Team. 
Traditionally, the Lady Trojans would 
have met together in the preseason and 
formed goals to meet throughout the 
year. Some examples would be making 
it to the National tournament, having a 
20-plus season of wins, or winning both 
hosted tournaments. But, after prayer 
and discussion, the team and the coach- 
ing staff decided to only designate one 
goal for the entire season. 

The goal was Hebrews 12:2. The verse 
says, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the 
author and perfecter of our faith, who 
for the joy set before him endured the 
cross, scorning its shame, and sat down 
at the right hand of the throne of God." 

Suddenly the Taylor women's basket- 
ball team was not about wins or losses. 
"It put things into perspective," said 
senior Sarah Shedd, "You know that if 
God isn't disappointed in you, nothing 
else really matters." 

Even coaches of opposing teams 
noticed a difference in the Ladv Trojans. 
After every game Taylor would invite 
their opponents to join with them in 
prayer. Senior Alicia Russell attributed

the girl's positive attitudes to Hebrews 
12:2. 

"We kept our goal in the forefront 
of our minds," Junior Liz Plass said. In 
doing so, the team's morale was differ- 
ent. "Our goal helped plavers to be more 
confident," Shedd added. 

By staying focused on Christ, the 
Taylor women also enjoyed a very 
successful season. The Lady Trojans 
boasted a 23-11 record, while going 13-3 
on their home court. Other season high- 
lights include defeating top-ranked 
Cedarville University, Cornerstone 
University, Urbana College, and St. 
Xavier, and sweeping Indiana Wesleyan. 

Three Lady Trojans received individual 
honors. Plass was selected the First 
Team. She led the MCC (7th in the 
NAIA) in scoring with an average of 

20.3 points per game and was second in 
free-throw shooting, with an average of 

87.4 percent. She was also named MCC 
player of the week three times through- 
out the season. She broke two Taylor 
records, scoring 38 points in a single 
game. She shot 18 of 19 of those points 
from the free-throw line. 

Senior Melanie Brumbaugh earned 
Second Team honors. She was fourth in 
the MCC in field goal percentage, aver- 
aging 54.2 and 5th in scoring with 14.7 
points per game. Brumbaugh was also 
20th in the NAIA in free-throw percent- 
age. 

Junior Lvdia Harris was selected to the 
Third Team. She averaged 3.7 assists 
and 2.1 steals per game. 

Russell was 2nd in the MCC in blocks. 
She broke the single game blocking 
record as well. 

The 2003-04 Lady Trojans remained 
true to their goal. As they fixed their 
eyes on Jesus, they were able to accom- 
plish many things through the game of 
basketball. Games were won, records 
were broken, but most importantly the 
genuine lo\'e of Christ was demonstrat- 
ed by each Lady Trojan.

The Taylor Trojan golf team had yet another great season 
of play Ending the spring on a high note, the Trojans put 
together their best round on the second day of the NAIA 
Region VIII Championships with a 309 which raised their 
ranking to a tie for 5th place. Kellen Moore led the squad 
with a score of 74, followed by Joe Zimmerman and Matt 
Hall both with 77. 

On April 26th the Trojan's found themselves sitting atop 
the Bethel College Golf Invitational. Using the Ryder Cup 
format, Taylor gained a six-stroke win over Huntington, a 
seven-stroke victory over Bethel, and an unrealistic 33 
stroke lead over Goshen. This victory as well as the strong 
finish in the regional tournament helped land Taylor a 
fourth place finish in the Mid-Central Conference. 

Unlike most other colleges, Taylor is a place where a play- 
er can not only hone on his personal skill, but can also strive 
after a better relationship with his team and with Jesus 
Christ. First year coach Jon Ochs emphasized not only a 
"team first" attitude but professionalism and servant lead- 
ership on and off the course. Ochs has been a part of the 
Taylor golf team since 2001. Last fall he led the Trojans to a 
victory as well as a second place finish.

ASEBALL 



Wind, rain, snow, iiurricanes, blizzards, 
and typhoons — the Trojan baseball 
team encountered it all in their 2004 tour 
de force. The season may be best repre- 
sented by a ball groundeci to the infield, 
unpredictable and inconsistently bounc- 
ing up and down. 

However, the measure of a team is cal- 
culated not by victory and advancement 
but by mental endurance and unity in 
the face of antagonistic factors. By this 
measure, the 2004 Trojan campaign was 
an utter success. 

Seven veterans returned to the lineup 
to greet a host of new freshman and 
transfer faces. From this initial transi- 
tion, the Trojans were never able to com- 
pletely get comfortable; changes kept 
occurring leaving the players with the 
difficult task of adapting to their ever- 
changing roles. 

The 18-28 end record seemed sec- 
ondary in importance to the more grati- 
fying goal of easing players into their 
positions and readying them for a 
brighter future. 

Youth may be Taylor's strongest asset. 
The dedicated players anticipate signifi- 
cant growth and maturity just around 
the corner. The fresh team will return 
next year with seasoned depth prepared 
for another season, this time with expe- 
rience to add to their promising youth.

SOFTBALL 



Senior Brandy 

Thornburgh keeps 

her eye on the 

pitch during 

Taylor's 3-2 win 

over the Indiana 

Wesleyan 

Wildcats. 




We, the Lady Trojans, returned to 
campus in the fall to find the new 
Kessler Center standing where our 
field used to be. After a fall of hard 
work and no field to call home, we 
looked forward to spring and initiat- 
ing our new field. 

By February we found ourselves 
with one pitcher and barely enough 
players to take the field. Through 
much prayer and many pitching 
lessons, we pressed on. Brandy 
Thornburgh and Emily Pensinger 
prepared to take the mound, praying 
hard that Sarah Sarracino's arm 
would last the season. 

In March we boarded a plane for a 
memorable spring break trip to 
Arizona. We were excited even after 
we realized that there was no beach 
in Arizona. We had practiced on dirt 
twice, so we were thrilled with the 
opportunity to get out on some 
Arizona dirt. We played eight games, 
with a mountain backdrop, in Tuscon 
and picked up our first win of the sea- 



son against St. Olaf. Friday of spring 
break we were inspired by the level of 
play of the U.S. Olympic team as they 
beat the University of Arizona with 
some of the best softball we'd ever 
seen! 

While we returned with a meager 1- 
7 record, we were encouraged by the 
31 runs we scored during the week. 
We were going to have a good season. 
Our bats started to come alive as 
freshmen Amy Richarson and Allie 
Butler returned with one home run 
apiece. 

We played our first home game on 
our new field on April 6th, and dedi- 
cated it in style, sweeping IWU. 
Sarracino gave the quality pitching 
performance we had come to expect. 
Pensinger continued what would 
become a four game home run streak, 
hitting one homerun in each game of 
the doubleheader. Lydia Flarris made 
two of her famous di\'ing catches to 
squelch any threat of an IWU come- 
back.

As the season continued to unfold, 
our success grew more and more. 
Under the senior leadership of 
Thornburgh at shortstop and Brooke 
Kanitz at third, we fought our way to 
an 8-6 conference record and the 3rd 
seed in the conference tournament. 
Our final record of 15-19 was the best 
record Taylor softball has seen in 6 
years. 

The Lady Trojans look toward next 
season with big expectations. Losing 
the left side of the infield will sting, 
but junior Kat Hunt will return with 
her awesome range at second base to 
lead the infield and Sarah Shedd and 
Abby Butler will return with Harris 
to form a solid outfield.

TRACK&FIELD 



Gone was the All-American 800m runner; gone 
was the National Shot Put Champion; gone was the 
seven-foot high jumper; gone was the best race 
walker in Taylor history. All totaled, the Taylor 
men's track and field team had lost four NAIA Ail- 
Americans going into the 2004 season. 

To repeat previous successes was unthinkable; to 
continue the unprecedented streak of MCC 
Conference Championships was doubtful; to avoid 
absolute failure in comparison to past seasons was 
deemed by some impossible. However, the Taylor 
men's track team did not succumb to doubt. 
Instead, they rose to the occasion, competing to the 
utmost of their collective abilities every meet, all 
season long. 

The men's team overcame the loss of four Ail- 
Americans by performing better as a whole. A daz- 
zling freshman class, including 200m and 400m run- 
ner Nate Porcher, high jumper Brandon House, hur- 
dler Randal Dunbar, and Lamont Laing helped ease 
the sting of graduated talent by consistently scoring 
in every meet. Sophomore Lance Vanderburg led 
the men's distance squad in the 1500m and 5000m, 
qualifying for NAIA Nationals in the 1500m. 

Juniors Richie Gibbs and Bryan Jackson again led 
the men's 4x400 relay team to NAIA Nationals. By 
qualifying in the llOH and 400m Intermediate hur- 
dles, Jackson is now considered by most to be 
Taylor's best hurdler since Darren Youngstom. 
Juniors Kyle Mangum and D.J. Jergenson also tram- 
pled competition this year in the 800m and triple 
jump. Senior Jeff Lay hurdled his way into the 
record books, leaving Taylor as the second best ham- 
mer thrower in school history. 

The Taylor women's track and field team continued 
to improve this season, competing for the top spot in 
several meets. The progression of junior sprinters 
Kirsten Thompson and Mary Obaka, coupled with 
the success of javelin thrower Amy Fowler, kept the 
women's team in the hunt for first place finishes. 
Freshmen jumping sensation Linnea Edstrom 
teamed up with Drew Tipton to form a one-two 
punch for the Taylor ladies. Jennifer Kamps com- 
peted in the 800m, 1500m, and 4x800 relay, and left 
Taylor owning the school 1500m record. Katie 
Spencer qualified for NAIA Nationals in the lOK, 
the most dreaded race in all of track and field. 

All in all, Taylor returned to the track with a 
vengeance this season, with the men capturing their 
lOth straight MCC Championship and the women 
not far behind.

The Taylor Lacrosse team returned only four 
players this year since last year's team was 
comprised mostly of seniors. Before the team 
began its season, captains recruited heavily. 

Ranking 13th when the season began, the 
team was expected to do well. Since the major- 
ity of team members were first-time players, 
however, they got off to a rough start. 

In a close battle with Central Michigan the 
team began its year in a loss. Next came the 
game against Purdue. Down 10 to 4 at half- 
time, the Trojans gave it their all during the 
second half and outscored Purdue 3-4. 

They finished the season strong with wins 
against Rose Hulman, Northwester 
University, Eastern Michigan, University of 
Toledo, Ball State, Wabash, University of 
Michigan-Dearborn and Ferris State. 

At the beginning of the playoffs, the lacrosse 
team faced off against Central Mighigan. 
Although they lost that battle, they are deter- 
mined to come back strong next year.

to a successful season next year 

The 0-10 record for the women's lacrosse team did not stop the team's success, 
according to head coach Carolyn Schley. They started the year with 20 girls, but lost 
a few due to injury and schedule conflicts. 

"While our record may look like our team wasn't that great, it was a re-building sea- 
son. The improvements I observed in the players and the team dynamics that I 
watched form outweigh the final record by far," said Schley. 

Since women's lacrosse is a club sport, all funds come from the players with min- 
imal support from TSO. The team conducted its own fundraisers and provided its 
own transportation, and the coaches played on the team. 

Assisstant coach Lindsay Bailey and Schley wanted the team to enjoy the pleasures 
of a hotel at least once during one of their two-day tournaments. They sent letters 
out to the players' parents and surprisingly received a generous reponse. The team 
spent two nights in a hotel with funds left over for pizza and golf. 

"I would say that my last two days of lacrosse were the best. It was during those 
days that 1 saw the girls in their true colors," said Schley. 

Bailey enjoyed the team's dedication and commitment to each other. "This group of 
women were definite examples of Christ on and off the field," she said. 

The coaches both expressed gratitude for the team's hard work this year. 

"I have great faith in the girls that will take over next year as leaders. If the team 
remains as it was this year, it caii only be strengthened," Schley said.

0\'er the past four years 1 have grovi'n to love the fields sur- 
rounding Upland, but I must admit I didn't always. As a freshman 
I yearned for the opportunity to leave campus . . . even if it was 
only a couple hours, because it helped to clear my mind. My 
favorite way to get off campus was to go to the barri to forget the 
worries related to class, friends, and life in general. 

"Being a freshman with a car I've never really felt trapped by 
being on campus in a town like Upland," said new equestrian 
team member Bethanie Shipman. "But on the occasions that I did 
feel smothered, I'd head straight to the barn. Horses, leather, and 
accomplishment . . . can't think of anything else that would be bet- 
ter for lightening the oppression of a corn field campus." 

This year the team worked hard at the ten shows. Even though 
there were not very many of us, we placed third at a few shows 
and put on the best shows in our region. Three riders qualified for 
the regional competition in April. There were Emiiv Wilson, 



Jessica Jones, and Justin Richman. Emily placed fourth in Novice 
Flat and Justin placed third in Walk, Trot. 

Several local children were involved in the team's one-on-one 
program. Pony Pals. Seven Taylor students and 13 third through 
fifth graders got together for trips to the barn, Ivanhoes, movies, 
and sleepovers. "When I was a horse crazy little girl, I would have 
loved for someone older to spend time with and to take me rid- 
ing," said Leana Befus, who was part of Pony Pals for four years. 
"It's nice to be a part of a kid's life who shares the same love for 
horses as I do." This was an opportunity to impact the communi- 
ty and share our love for horses. 

We are looking to the future and what we hope to accomplish 
next year. Who knows? It might be our best year yet.

Taylor students once again spent a large amount of time 
and energy on the courts and fields of the Taylor intra- 
mural department. 

Throughout the year students from all se\'en dorms on 
Taylor's campus, and students living in off campus hous- 
ing participated in Taylor intramurals. The sports ranged 
from fall football, soccer, co-ed \'olleyball, basketball, soft- 
ball, and spring football with champions being crowned 
in each sport. 

The intramural year kicked off with fall football, and 
a new tradition was unveiled — Parents Weekend and 
Homecoming Weekend championship games. The deci- 
sion to move the games to whichever of the two weekends 
gi\'es parents a better opportunity to see their kids in 
action. Off Campus won the men's champoinships, 
defeating Phurst West Wengatz to win the crown. Second 
West Olson won the women's title. After three straight 
trips to the championship game (Spring '02, Fall '02, 
Spring '03), they finallv came away with the crown. 

Off Campus and Third West Olson, respectively, won 
the men's and women's soccer championships. Soccer 
was followed up by the J-term sport of co-ed vollevball. 
Mmmmmbump! won the B league championship by 
defeating The Bubars. Dale's Kids won the A league cham- 
poinship bv beating Timberhut. 

The basketball seasons ended with tour new champions 
crowned. The women's championship was won by First 
West Olson. The men's C, B, and A league championships 
were won by Let It Rain, The Bombers, and The Muffin 
Men respectively. 

The year wound down with the intramural softball sea- 
sons. As the weather turned nice, the bats came out, and 
the ping of leather on aluminum was heard around cam- 
pus. This year's champion in the co-ed league was Come 
On Get in The Boat who defeated Dusty Baker's 
Toothpicks. Sammy II won the men's championship, 
defeating Second Berg for a championship sweep. 

Whether teams won or lost, the most important thing 
was that Christ was glorified through the athletic activi- 
ties that were made possible by the Taylor University 
intramural department.

Taylor . . . one word that conjures up so many different meanings and emotions. How can a place of 
higher education become not just a "place," but a dwelling place, a home, for such a short season of life? 

Each experience is unique and may begin in a different season. However, whether it is a season of 
flowering or of ripening, the Lord can mature and use His own no matter where they are on the journey. 

Reflecting on the past and courageously seeking God's will for our futures allow Taylor's impact to 
be so powerful. The creation of this yearbook began with this prayer in mind for everyone at Taylor. 

Live moment by moment . . . IniigJl uncontrollably . . . lenm something new each day . . . loi^e with 
an everlasting love . . . lead in an honorable way . . . link others to Christ and His Kingdom . . . and may 
those actions last until the day of completion in Christ Jesus. 

Thank you, Taylor, for a season of life that continues to shape our lives for the honor and glory 
of God. May the Lord bless you and may you always be proud to be TaylorMade.

The mission statement of Taylor University is clear and direct. 

Taylor University is an interdenominational evangelical Christian institution educating 
men and women for lifelong learning and for ministering the redemptive love of Jesus 
Christ to a world in need. As a Christian community' of students, faculty, staff, adminis- 
tration, and trustees committed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, Taylor University offers 
postsecondary liberal arts and professional education based upon the conviction that all 
truth has its source in God. 

President Gyertson has stated, "Taylor University is a disciple-making institution using education as the 
means to accomplish our goals." The question then must be asked, "How can we best prepare students to 
make a mark in our world — for eternity? The only permanent accomplishment for anyone is to bear fruit 
that will last." Jesus said, "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, 
fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name (Jn. 15:16 NIV). The greatest 
privilege any faculty, administrator, or staff member can have is to invest in young people who will then go 
and fulfill the great commission in whatever vocation they choose. Mark wrote, "Jesus said to them. Go into 
all the world and preach the good news to all creation" (Mk. 16:15 NIV). 

That is what "Made to Last" means to me. Paul wrote to Timothy, "Command them to do good, to be rich 
in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves 
as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life (I Tim. 6:18-19 
NIV). As we are faithful to do this, we then fulfill kingdom work in training students to multiply our efforts. 
There is no greater reward than to work toward things that last — for eternity. It is a most meaningful time 
for me to experience Homecoming and meet alumni, in whom we have invested our lives, and to see their 
steadfast commitment and the wonderful fruit they are bearing. This is truly "Made to Last," the essence of 
a Christian world view. 

My wife and I have had the privilege of investing in Taylor students for 35 years and now see a bit of our- 
selves all over the world as represented in our alumni. It is simply "kingdom work" or "eternal stuff," as I 
call it, to invest in other people and to be faithful to our calling with the gifts God has given us. Many times 
I have wanted to be 'out there' where our alumni are serving God, but I am constantly reminded that my call- 
ing is here, back at home base — Taylor University — training, nurturing, and equipping students to fulfill 
the great commission. There is no higher motivation for me than to do what God has called me to do: invest 
everything I have, as God gives me strength and wisdom, in Taylor students. Only what is done for Christ 
will last, so we encourage students to practice keeping eternity's values in view in all areas of their lives. 

There is so much at stake in the short time students are at Taylor. The years spent here can be used for the 
utmost in training to be Christian servant leaders, or it can be spent in a frivolous manner, time wasted and 
energies misplaced. My constant prayer is that the Taylor experience will bring students to a place in their 
educational, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual lives that truly will be "Made to Last." 

Soli Deo Gloria - To God alone be the glory!
